Dave, thanks for the advice. I thought about using VLC but could figure 
out how to modulate it to the proper EIA channel. I figured someone 
would've made a PCI-E card that has a RF interface w/ upconverter 
built-in. The only one I found was from DEKTEC and they only modulate to 
digital signals not analog. I'll start playing with that today!

Thanks again.
