Silly Job Title: Master Planner

In this video I create some cables so I can attach my circuits to my roof aerial. I also announce the old book and new book for the upcoming teardowns which will be released in the next few days.

While doing this video I learned over on the EEVblog Electronics Community Forum that the specific RF cable connectors we are using in this project are Belling-Lee connectors.

There is going to be a break in Maxitronix 20in1 videos for a few days while I wait for my new Logitech BRIO webcam to arrive. Once that is here recording in the booth will resume.

In this video I mention the Silicon Chip magazine and Beginner’s Guide to Reading Schematics. Also the various new book teardowns I refer to are:

I also refer to MPLAB X IDE and MPLAB PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger.

The technology I mention in the beginning of the video is this:

The new monitor I refer to in the video is this UPERFECT 4K Monitor 15.6″ Portable Gaming Monitor UHD PC Screen USB C Monitor.

The cables I use in this project are these:

Standard Aussie home television aerial RF coaxial connector

Man I had a lot of trouble figuring out what these things are called. I can tell you that they are not called F-Type, BNC, SMA, N-Type, or PL-259 connectors. In the I end I asked about this and learned these connectors are called Belling-Lee connectors, also known as IEC 169-2 Female/Male. But if you search for “IEC connector” (which these things are apparently sometimes called) you will only find the power adapters, not these aerial connectors.
