I'm afraid (working) RF modulators are rare, in particular in "our" part
of the world. I remember about ten years ago when I acquired my third VIC
(my second within a few months, as the first one died). Its RF died quite

Fortunately I knew about an old computer dealer only a mile from where I
live, who still had shrink-wrapped VICs and 64s in his warehouse. I talked
him into opening one package and sold me a new RF modulator for about $25.
Later, I got a composite video monitor and made myself a such cable
instead. But I do use both solutions still today.

If you have a TV set with composite video, SCART or something similar, you
should consider building your own composite video cable which will give
you a much sharper picture than the one through the RF modulator.
