(Yahoo profile says you're in Texas ... all are welcome here but as you may have read we're basically a mid-Atlantic group.)

Subject: Re: [midatlanticretro] Looking for RF modulatorsRadio Shack has a cable adapter to adapt an RCA jack to the cableconnector on the back of the TV. On the new cable ready TV setyou don't need a 75 to 300 ohm converter/switch box.

Depending on what classic yer talking about, you dont
need modulation, just a switch (those switches may
also convert 75 to 300 ohms). Frinstance, the C64
output channel 3 through the rca jack, carrierless
composite video through the round din connector.
