the first broadcast
last night John and i met to prototype the TV transmitter. John has some experience at electronics and so he brought a breadboard and drew out the schematics for the transmitter. he then put the components together and we hacked a rca cable for input.
our testing was going poorly until we realized to check our source, sure enough the displays had not auto detected. we immediately saw a transmitted image and spent the next hour tuning the transmitter. an antenna is going to absolutely necessary and we want to prototype an amplifier as soon as I return from my travel.
and as a bonus i was able to make the FM transmitter broadcast through out the room while John was scaring up a cable.
