# Video through antenna?

A

I have a little black and white sony watchman, and I want to wire up a
little video camera to it. The problem is, the watchman doesn't have a
line in. I'm pretty sure the same signal goes through the air as does
through a cable, so is there a way I could bypass the amp for the
antenna signal, and wire a "line in" cable to this thing?

Thanks,
Alex

Unless you have the schematic diagram of the watchman and are
sufficiently knowledgeable to add a video jack, no.

You can get a video modulator (or rf modulator, depending on the
copywriter) that converts the signal from the camera to a signal on TV
channel 3 or 4. This you can connect to the TV antenna.

Jameco has one for $2.49 http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/st...toreId=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=121555 The modulator needs 12 volts DC for power. Jameco also has a 12 volt power supply for$4.95

For $7.50 and shipping you can connect the camera to the TV. Or you can go to your local Radio Shack where they will sell you the same thing in a pretty box for$39.95
