How to Tune in to "TVG"

Many modern TVs and VCRs are also able to tune down to receive TV transmissions in the 70cm band. There is little trouble at the high end of the band where 443-450 MHz (UHF Channel 16) is known as ATV 2.

ATV Transmissions on the 24cm band can be received directly by most satellite receivers, which cover 950-1450 MHz. This covers the 24cm band, where ATV channels are centred on 1250 and 1283 MHz.
