Abstract: For H. Exton's $ q$-analogue of the Bessel function (going back to W. Hahn in a special case, but different from F. H. Jackson's $ q$-Bessel functions) we derive Hansen-Lommel type orthogonality relations, which, by a symmetry, turn out to be equivalent to orthogonality relations which are $ q$-analogues of the Hankel integral transform pair. These results are implicit, in the context of quantum groups, in a paper by Vaksman and Korogodskiĭ. As a specialization we get ($ q$-cosines and $ q$-sines which admit $ q$-analogues of the Fourier-cosine and Fourier-sine transforms. We also get a formula which is both an analogue of Graf's addition formula and of the Weber-Schafheitlin discontinuous integral.
