Anonther easy way is using an old videorecorder as UHV modulator.
E.g

   VDR --VideoSig---- OldVCR --VideoSig---- TV
                       *
                       *
                       *** UHV-Sig ******* Coax

This has the advantage, that you can get the good videosignal directly in to
your VDR neighbour TV and the UHV to all others, but works only if your old VCR
has an extra video/audio input, e.g. on the front for a video camera.
Switch old VCR to AUX.
