> A good circuit for powering from a car battery or other source
with a higher voltage would be a 600 mA fuse and a 9V regulator like
a 7809 of your favourite manufacturer in series.

it's that if u use just a 7809 the voltage is about 8 volts, I
experienced it 2 times (1 a while ago but I remembered when the 2nd
spit out just 8 volts)

the 7809 needs a lil buffering the energy, I made this witch adding a
470uf/25V condensator to input and output

also it is important that is has a little load to work correctly

I made this with a LED what also tells me if the thing is working

I'm a pro tv service technican btw
