    lights and sounds from costco right now... adding LED's and planning a lightorama 8 or 16 channel for next year, adding every year
  1. finally found some at an Orchard Supply. got 14 100 white strings at a home depot and 20 white, 20 blue and 20 multi all 60 count, at OSH. used the 10% off lowes Coupons to make the 50 % off even better. 74 strings for about 380 makes about $5 per string. I think the stores are getting their #'s more dialed.... boo
  2. super slim this year at lowes home depot walmart etc... I got some at one HD, but that was slim too... Rite aid was boxing all theirs to store for next year!!! WTF!!! anyone finding good stuff?
  3. argh! I saw 6 replies and I was so stoked..!!! yes they are LED... I have a LKP,.... but it doesnt work on LEDs as you guys mentioned! thanks for popping in anyway!
  4. I have 2 strings of leds icicles, where after the Male plug, it is failing... one it is dim, the other it is out... only the 10 inches or so from the male plug... no bulbs are missing or loose.. and after that section, it is icicling as usual... any ideas?
  5. ok checked your site... you have that brown strip at the top, leave the female plug up there, and clip the first mini into it, then let them hang, and clip a mini into the bottom brown strip......or... where are they plugged in? that is an interesting product... how does it work for all the varying sizes of minis and LEDs you have (if you have any differences...)
  6. RJ, Holy cr*p. yes.... what spacing? and how are they hanging etc.... thanks!!!!
  7. Hey everyone... I have a couple questions..! searching failed me, as I dont think I know the right Xmas fanatic vocab to search for... I have seen people use the PVC method for the eve edge iciciles and C9's.... make a 1/2" PVC with hooks and eyes, zip tie lights to it etc... are there any other techniques for eves (once off build and easy install)? links would be awesome. other question is the dense "wall" or curtain of lights that I see people do when they want to cover a whole space or wall. I cant figure an easy, and removable way to install evenly the dozens of strings... a b
  8. can I just buy a small antenna at radio shack etc if it has the correct coaxial connector? does a transmit/receive antenna function the same...?
  9. Hey everyone, I bought a fm25b on ebay, but he was missing the antenna. My yard is not large, distance from garage where gear will be to the street is like 15 yards... so I just need some ideas on what I need/can make cheap for a GOOD antenna. not for an acre or anything... any sources/ideas? thanks!
  10. is it me or are we being a bit selfish... park your car out there, or pile leaves or snow so no one can park... or just forget about it.. how do they like the lights, noise and traffic from your show... ? I would say unless they park a winnebago... just leave well enough alone, you might trade the one or two cars parked for a ahole cop calling code enforcement calling light unplugging psycho neighbor!
  11. nice job doug... as was said above, I have been to every lowes I know of... and no one has jack left... their site is crap too as far as trying to check stock...
  12. ot it could have been a FREAKING SQUIRREL!!!! WTF!!! some strings gnawed, others just bitten clean through!!! arghhh!!!
  13. it worked for me a while back.. I bought 12 boxes at least... however most lowes have no lights at all let alone LEDs left anyway... so it is a bit moot....
  14. riteaid had LOADS of minis at my store... it is in their ad...
