Thank you for accessing this pdf. HS Publications  was established in 1975 when Keith Hamer and Garry Smith launched ‘Guide to Worldwide Television Test Cards’, a World-wide seller. Our involvement in the DX-TV hobby and a massive interest in TV graphics, especially test cards, has attracted quite a following over the decades. Requests for non-mainstream products from other enthusiasts involved with both hobbies created a situation where HS Publications  has been able to offer these specialised products. Today, many products are unique and exclusive to HS Publications . A small selection of catalogue items are featured within the sample TeleRadio News magazine featured later. Feel free to request the latest version of our full catalogue pdf or even comment on your hobby interests or experiences.

Reception occurs randomly and so you cannot pick and choose the countries that appear. This is one of the fascinations of the hobby. THE BASICS   You need a receiver and an aerial covering Band I (48-70MHz). Most modern flat-screen receivers will provide analogue tuning and cover Bands I, II & III but their wide bandwidth will often disappoint as they will only perform well on strong signals – this also applies to PC tuner cards. Don’t neglect the aerial and always use the correct type. An FM array may seem to work in Band I but it will not be very efficient. The designs in our catalogue have proved VERY effective over the years and are TRIED AND TESTED. For Sporadic-E reception where signals arrive at a shallow angle, aerials installed at heights of around 5 metres work fine. For weak-signal work we recommend the D100 or D500 DX-TV Converter with vision I.F. bandwidth reduction. A reduced IF bandwidth provides greater selectivity (better rejection of unwanted signals) and has the ability to lift weak signals from the noise. This array covers 48-110MHz, a neat answer to TV & FM DX-ing during the summer. The D-100 Converter first launched in 1983. The unit has been exported to all corners of the globe and has received enthusiastic praise in the technical press and club magazines. We can still supply these on a ‘built-to-order’ basis while components are still available. If interested, please contact us at GarrySmith405625.hs@gmail.com for availability, prices and supply times.     4     Lower Antenna: Manually rotatable Band I array. Top: VF-100 array covering 48-110MHz (Bands I, II & FM) + 175-230MHz (Band III). Location: Derby UK. A wideband UHF array was added to the boom for local/DX reception. A pole mast is easy to create using a pivot and retaining bracket (available via our catalogue). The mast can be lowered single-handed in seconds. Test cards from Russia, Spain and Poland in 1970 - the good old days of DX-ing! FOR THE LATEST VERSION OF OUR FULL CATALOGUE PDF AND CURRENT PRICES E-mail: GarrySmith405625.hs@gmail.com
