January Show. We will finalize the plans as soon as we get more
balance in the treasury is $4528.25 in cash and savings. A few members still
need to submit their dues.
Graybill presented a program on the basics of DCC covering the difference
between DC and DCC, different DCC systems, engine decoders, wiring, and what
you can do with a DCC system.
passed around examples of DCC++ and DCC++EX which are Arduino based DCC
systems that can be built using existing Arduino components along with a
computer or cell phone.
Vilsack brought an example of T-Track modules which had a DCC control system
that allowed two engines to run in a loop automatically without hitting each
other. The system used a sensor that, when triggered, would adjust the
speed of each engine so that they stayed apart from each other.
SHMRRC meeting will be at the Mt. Lebanon United Lutheran Church at 7:00 pm
