Community Area Television system of providing television to consumers via radio frequency signals transmitted to televisions through fixed optical fibers or coax cables as opposed to the over-the-air broadcast method. In areas where over-the-air reception was limited by mountainous terrain, large "community antennas" were constructed, and cable was run from them to individual homes.
From the ATSC website: The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) is an international organization of 200 members that is establishing voluntary technical standards for advanced television systems. ATSC Digital TV Standards include digital high definition television (HDTV), standard definition television (SDTV), data broadcasting, multichannel surround-sound audio, and Satellite direct-to-home broadcasting.

Channels 2 through 36, Price: $116.00 Channels 37 through 78, Price: $176.00 When ordering, please designate a single specific channel from CATV 2 to 78. The 300VMF-a fixed channel video modulator is a quality vestigial sideband heterodyne audio/video modulator that provides a modulated visual and aural RF carrier output on any single channel up to CATV 78. The 300VMFa is designed to accept video and audio baseband signals from a satellite receiver, TV camera, or any compatible input. Heterodyne conversion system, in conjunction with the use of a SAW filter, insures optimum vestigial selectivity for adjacent channel headends. Accepts standard video at 0.7 to 1.5 Vpp level. All level controls are located on the front panel. High output power to +55 dBmV. A convenient monitor port is provided. All aeronautical channels are offset positive with a tolerance of ± 5 kHz as required by FCC rules.
RF Frequency Range:54 through 300 MHz. Channels Available:VHF 2 through 13 Midband 14 through 22 (A-l) and 95 through 99 (A5-A1) Superband 23-36 (J-W) FCC Frequency Offsets:All aeronautical channels offset positive with a tolerance of ±5 kHz. Output Level:+55 dBmV minimum, (typically adjustable from +40 to +55 dBmV). Output Impedance:75 Ohms; return loss of 14 dB. A/V Ratio:Audio Carrier -20 to -10 dB referenced to video carrier, adjustable. Frequency Stability, Visual:Within ± 10 kHz of assigned channel frequency. Within ±5 kHz of assigned channel frequency on FCC offset channels. Aural Intercarrier Frequency:4.5 MHz, ± 5 kHz. Spurious Outputs:-60 dBc minimum, measured at -15 dB A/V ratio and with modulator output level of + 55 dBmV. In-Channel C/N:-60 dBc. Broadband Noise:-80 dBc @ ± 30 MHz or greater spacing. (Specified levels are referenced to the video carrier and measured in a 4 MHz bandwidth.)

Video S/N: 60 dB minimum, luminance weighted. L/C Delay: Within 50 nanoseconds of 0 nanoseconds L/C delay (complies with FCC rule 76.605). Differential Gain: Less than ± 5% (10 to 90% APL). Differential Phase: Standard: Less than ± 5 degrees (10 to 90% APL). By special order: Less than ± 3 degrees (10 to 90% APL).

An RF Demodulator tunes in TV and CATV stations to create separate audio and video signals. These devices are used to receive television signals from the over-the-air TV Broadcast band (Ch 2- 69) or the Cable TV band (Ch 2-125). Most commercial grade units (like the ones shown above) have screw-on F-Type connectors for audio and video outputs. For connections using an Audio/Video Cable (composite video and analog audio), F-Type to RCA adaptors may be required. These units generally have an LED channel display and output adjustments for video and audio levels. Precision Screwdrivers should be used for these adjustments. To connect a mono modulator to a stereo device, use a Y-Jack Adapter. Strong local stations, or close proximity to a distribution amp, may require an RF Attenuator to reduce signal level. Modulator/Demodulator sets are often used on isolated Cable TV Systems to keep antenna and adjacent channel interference out of the line. UHF signals, in particular, are difficult to stop without total isolation. Standard definition devices have composite (video+audio) outputs and a combined RF input which is tuned to a specific TV channel. High definition (HDTV) and stereo versions are available, but can be quite expensive. Most are commercial grade. However, consumer grade VCR's can also be used as a TV or CATV demodulator. Note that most NTSC (Analog) broadcast TV stations are scheduled to go off the air in 2009. Consider buying ATSC (digital) units instead.
The HDD & HMDD Demodulators permit the delivery of digital television signals in analog format directly to a television. They also interface easily with existing analog modulators on CATV networks. These high performance digital receivers allow for the reception and demodulation of an 8VSB (Off- air SD/HD digital TV Signal) or QAM (Digital CATV) signal into a baseband NTSC video and audio output.
