Looking for a Portable Video Transmitter & a Reciever in the UK

Hi,

I desperately need a portable tv transmitter as well as a seperate receiver., Note it has to broadcast a TV signal through a normal aerial, NOT a wireless 1.2ghz signal.

I'm trying to create a portable VIDEO walkie talkie, using a video signal instead of an audio signal to communicate.

Pls state Links, guide etc.

Also advice on how to do this on a Non-cable Tv., ie a normal tv antennae

thnx.,

Are there rules there about how powerful a transmitter you can have, like they do here in the US?  Theoretically, you could beam a fake broadcast into someone's home and drive them crazy.

Your neighborhood supplier for spies and private detectives should have something that will work for you, if you don't care about the cost.

You should be able to pick up some low power transmitters and recievers and jack them up using a few parts from radio-shack but... and here's the but... they're going to use a badger-load of power...

so short of having some kind of portable nuclear generator (think you can get them on ebay - refurbished from iraq) you're going to have significant power problems...

CallandorCommented:
What we're trying to say is tv broadcasting requires a lot of power, a lot more than radio.  At least the wireless cameras don't need that much.

Yeah you can get WiFi cameras online that have a 15m range....

CallandorCommented:

DJ_ZeratulCommented:
they make car batteries that weigh 13 pounds...

i could carry 26 pounds on my back, i did it al through middle school :)

OliWarnerCommented:
Yeah but these 13 pounders wont have the juice to keep a transmitter going for more than 10 minutes...

What you want are 2 Volvo batteries on skateboards.... They're as long as the skateboard, so i guess you could stack them but each weighs one metric tonne...

if you are going to do that, might as well just get a small generator

I guess the refurbished Iraqi nuclear generator idea didn't go over too well...  maybe a link to the solution would be useful?

TLO, is that really fair?

Please, just look at the input people have gone to. There are so many answers in this thread that are either right "not phesably practical" or links to actual products that will do the job.

Even if yo dont feel you need to give points for trying there's always the post that says:
"i just bought one & cheap too, uses a 9v volt battery for the camera & transmitter & a 12v dc adaptor for the reciever, feel free to give me points for not listening to you guys :p & answering my own question..." from the author.

Your moderating would be made so much easier if you spent another minute to suggest something that might not conflict with the actual flow of the thread.
