Now, this use of FPRF qualifies for that. I'd have never thought to put high-quality video on the ham bands. Just hearing about that gives me ideas now that I know it's feasible. It's really an amazing demo that shows the power that this tech puts into people's hands and how such enablers can create unforseen innovations. I might email it to Lime with a suggestion to showcase it as a case study.
This is outside my field where I can't directly build on it. Yet, I did collect a link for anyone interested in building on Lime's stuff. It's below. Any other really good ones people reply with I'll add to my collection to share on related threads.
Dude, it's been feasible since the 1960's, and cheap since home video equipment became common in the 1970's. Old fashion NTSC signals are just simple AM modulators, dirt cheap and dirt simple to build. (OK, I admit that a VSB transmitter requires an interesting filter, but not out of the question, and more-or-less optional unless you are running high power.) Also, some hams have been doing NTSC over FM for quite a few years (SITN used to run over FM).
Modern digital video is also pretty much plug-and-play these days, although building a transmitter from scratch with a half dozen transistors isn't a thing.
Let's flip it in a different direction. What have you found to be the most interesting and noteworthy applications of FPRF for a hobbyist and/or manufacturer? What examples should I pass along to people wanting to tinker with them or push the envelope?
