  3. I have around 200 channels and 15 minutes of audio that need sequenced. I'm well into about 1/3 of it, but would gladly turn a song or two over to someone else and compensate for the effort. My time over the next few weeks is dwindling and I'm committed at this point. I do have a pictures of the display and LOR animation and channels laid out. You'd have a good foundation to start on. Anyone interested?
  4. Yea. I should quality what I ment by 'public'. I am not charging a fee. What's changing for me is that this has been a visible show for years without a drive up and watch the show sequence. This year we're going to sequence to music. I am aware I am getting in over my head. I have most of my planning done and am taking baby steps now. I won't be doing this alone. I'll have 4-6 people helping. Any idea how many hours per minute of audio I should plan for sequencing?
  5. We've a business that has done LOR based shows for the last 5-6 years. Usually around 400-500 strings. We're known in the area for doing light shows. However they have always been drive by stuff (we're located right on the side of an interstate and you can see us for about 1/4 mile in each direction. This last winter we pitched the idea to one of our vendors of doing a display set to music and they are helping to fund the cost this year. I'm flying blind on this one and was wondering if you guys could give some advice. Whats a good date to start? I am thinking of doing a "friends \ emplo
  6. I found a way to use a low cost RS485 module and antenna to remove the wires from my display. The modules run at 19,200bps which is the long distance setting on LOR. They work amazingly well. I have a display thats about 1/4mi long and I cover the entire thing with two wireless channels. I've had no issues so far with the setup. I just drill an antenna hole in the top of the case and put the small 1"x2" board inside the case. You can pull power off the LOR board and signal from the middle two pin on the Cat5 Jack. This is not as advanced as the EZ-Light Linkers, and the parts are straight
  7. I have a 44ft mega tree with a 10ft star (tip to tip). The ratio seems about right.
  8. I also use rebar as stakes for my mega-tree's. Home Depot was over twice the price of my local lumber yard.
  9. I've got about $300 in it between the stringer, plugs and bulbs.. would take $150. Half price, used 1 season.
  10. still available. I'll take any reasonable offer on these. Does not look like I can find a place for them this year.
  11. Yes, they are C7's... my fault. I already picked up the strands that I am repalcing this with. You know how "the plan" changes as setup week nears. The sockets are 12" spacing. It does not make sense to sell the wire without the bulbs, they are a fraction of the cost of the actual wire.
  12. Good thought. What have other people done about stacking 10+ plugs. Anyone have problems with this? There is little tension on them, but it seems there should be a better solution.
