Tx Eric

Is this transmitter any good? Is it even worthwhile finding a receiver for it? Or is it a case of tech is so old May as while chuck in the trash?

Probably works with strictly analog signals, and I'm guessing locked into a small range of channels (set by a dial somewhere on the chassis)? 

 

You can probably find an old Sony TU-1041U VHF receiver on eBay for fairly cheap (<$50), and a Sharkfin antenna will probably be the most costly piece depending on availability and price. Even after all that, you still have an analog transmitter, susceptible to interference, snow, people clamoring "this looks soft" from video village, etc. 

 

Maybe just hang onto it until the need arises, then borrow the additional pieces to make it work? I'm betting it'll be a while before you need it.

Yeah, considering all the film labs in SA have closed down I won't be needing it anytime soon…
