The action here in Sydney is via the Lawson ATV repeater with high definition output on 445.50 MHz with analogue and digital inputs on the 23cm band. 

Set top boxes are available for receiving such as the GT Media V7 plus or pro which will allow manual frequency entry. A good video demonstrating this is:-

Aiming a suitable horizontally polarised antenna towards Lawson on the Blue Mountains should result in reception of VK2RTS amateur HD TV.

Audio video Input can be easily achieved by using low cost analogue FM  drone gear that produces good quality pictures. Combine it with a directional antenna such as an easy to build 9dBi gain bi-quad, see photos.

For those who can't  receive direct there is a streaming service on the British Amateur TV club web site, you can also text to say your watching. Just select VK2RTS - Sydney on a Monday night from 7:30 pm AEST to follow the action during our Sydney ATV Group net. Voice talk back during nets is via the Lawson 147.325 MHz + offset repeater. Give us a call during the net to let us know your watching or help with receiving and transmitting amateur TV.
