    UHF and VHF modulators

    Does anyone have experience with these items? A local ad is giving away a free box of these, dismantled from an old hotel tv network. Is it worth my time to pick them up? Are they heavy and copper bearing or just electronics?

    No clue without brand names and model numbers.
    Ebay sold listings say $3 to $8 each, however that is just a generic search.

    Have picked them up. The guy used to be in TV work. Advised me that each unit is worth $100 Australian, but that it is a specialised area and he could be a while selling them. He just wanted them gone. Last look on eBay, someone was selling them for over $150 American. Hope I can get somewhere near this if those prices are realistic!
