Georgia Members...How Many????


Recommended Posts

Hello from Albany, Georgia. 2008 will be our first year.

We are using LOR and LED lights. Radio transmitter too!

We have 38 channels presently.

Looking for other Albany, Ga people to talk to. I know you are out there! John and Darlene

Hello John and Darlene, I'm in Lee County. I started last year with 16 LOR channels and loved it. Moved up to 48 channels for this year and working on my first megatree. Good Luck! Troy

Ok Georgia Members.......I want to know how many channels, lights you got. and when you started animating?

Add one more to the list for Georgia. :eek: :eek: :eek:

I started my usual static display of about 2000 lights on Thanksgiving weekend. Then decided to purchase a 16ch LOR. Got it on the 11th of Dec, built it that night and the next, was able to wire it up that weekend.

I have about another 3000 lights that I didn't put up. ( Didn't have enough extension cords, and I'm limited on outlets )

The following week, purchased and set up the Ramsey FM25B. Seems to work great.

So far, I have 3 songs in the show. I sequenced one and downloaded the other two.

Late start, I know. but so far it's been fun. I figured it wasn't tooooo late. I'm actually getting an early start for next year. :)

But good grief, what am I getting myself into ?!?

I'm in Acworth, around the corner from Hwy92 and Wade Green Rd.

Hi everyone,

I'm Chuck Hammock from Macon Georgia. Started about 5 years ago with 16 channel of LOR in my yard. Did an indoor show with the "Live Out Loud" children's choir singing live and the sync'd instrumental track going from LOR to the sound/mixing board in 2006 and 2007 with DMX, fog, moon beams, snow, etc. In 2008 we did 208 channels of LOR and 35,000 lights at the Chick-fil-A at I-75's exit 169 as a benefit for Habitat for Humanity. More info is at:

Hi Jerry Newbie:

Welcome. I'm in Albany. There are 3 of us in Albany that do this and one in Moultrie. So South Georgia is getting more and more Christmas Light Fanciers. We did our first display last year for halloween and Christmas. If you need any help, just ask. Everyone here at PC is very nice.

I got o Valdosta about 3 times a year to hold court. Maybe sometime I can give you a call when I'm there and we can talk Christmas lights. We usually go in November but not December. We are heading down to the Florida Mini Sept 19th. Are you going? Its free and should be fun. There's always something to learn. It is not far, down in Lawtey (Near Starke Fla just off I-10)

I know you posted this a while back, but I'm just stumbling on this now.

How Cool! I am in Fayetteville off of Hwy92 South (for everyone not having a clue...it's about 15 minutes away from Art). This is my first year, so I have a modest 48 channels and not really sure how many lights ;-) I'm taking a static display and making it dance :-) Will be adding a 10' mega tree, 16 mini trees and a few other things that I will add as I go along. Reading all the different blogs, I think I'm far behind where I should be. With school starting up (I'm the band director over at Booth MS), it is kind of getting in the way ;-) Oh...on the display. It was all white before (guessing...10,000 lights...maybe), but am trying to add in Red and Green minis as well.

Oh well. Excited to have a fellow Planet Christmaser near by. Now let's see if I can get all the resistors on this LOR board soldered in before Church ;-)
