Confessions of Past Piracy
Posted on November 9, 2008
Back in the 70s a friend who operated a TV repair shop gave me a homemade FM transmitter with three stages, each tunable by a slug coil. I put an FM antenna in the attic and tuned it up for peak output, probably 1-watt, and a couple I knew tuned in every Friday night for the latest comedy recordings together with my banter, then they’d call on the telephone and we’d laugh ourselves silly. Meanwhile, in between, the other households had no idea this was going on. No victims, no interference to licensed stations, no homeland insecurity.
