  1. Another think to keep in mind is power. LED's will be a good route due to low power draw, I doubt most of the locations you will be visiting have 17 dedicated circuits! This sounds like a great idea!
  2. I keep mine outside. Mounted off the ground to keep chords off the ground. Cover with garbage bag. I also have one mounted to the fence just in the LOR case. Stays out all year. No water damage yet.
  3. Where do most of you get your signs printed? Do you design and give them the file, or let them do the design? I am having on printed from FastSigns now, I'll let you know how it turns out.
  4. I'm using the antenna that comes with the kit, its just a little metal telescoping antenna with a BNC connector. I have it sitting behind a couch on the 2nd floor of my house, haven't tried to see how far I can go, but I get a clean signal in-front of my house and the ones next door. I would say at least 300-400 ft. Also, you could easily improve the range with a bigger antenna (maybe something like those ugly antennas we all used to have on top of our houses), would be easy to do with the BNC connector.
  5. If you're crunched for time or are bad at soldering (like me), I bought a Ramsey FM30B off eBay from this user and it has worked great. No more getting out and holding my car antenna to clear up the signal.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/RAMSEY-FM30B-FM-STEREO-TRANSMITTER-NEW-/320811728812?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab1de7fac
  6. I bought a FM30B from this user off eBay about a month ago. Shipped quickly, fully assembled, works great (works 100x better than the Whole House Transmitter) http://www.ebay.com/itm/RAMSEY-FM30B-FM-STEREO-TRANSMITTER-NEW-/320811728812?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab1de7fac
  7. What did you use for power? DC from the vehicle or a generator?
  8. Post your videos of how you pay respect to your Alma Mater during the holidays... Merry Christmas, Go Frogs!
  9. Anyone know if there is a way to sense a GFCI trip from the sortware side? Would like to be able to automatically shutdown the show when one of the controllers goes out. (Only running 32 channels, so when one controller trips it kills half the show) Looks like its going to be a rainy Christmas season...
  10. Anyway to have it sense when part of the show goes down and start the weather sequence automatically?
