This is my first year (trying) to get my lights all blinky-flashy.

What are the popular ways of letting people know what radio station to tune to in order to hear the music?

Thanks.

You can use a LEDTriks, a painted sign with a spotlight, or backlight a box with vinyl decals on plexiglass. Photovor was offering his services to make vinyl decals, but his offer ended on the 11th. For ideas search for "Tune to sign"

Last year I used the back of one of those coroplast signs that happen to appear all over in November. (I can’t remember who’s name is on the other side) I then used black marker and wrote the transmitting frequency in BOLD letters for people to see during the day. To increase nighttime visibility, I punched/drilled 100 holes in the numbers/letters and added a 100-count string of red mini lights to the sign.

I think that it worked really well for a last minute sign. This year, I ordered vinyl lettering from Photovor and am currently making a nice little lexan/wood box with back lighting.

That's exactly what I was trying to describe. A perfect example of the old saying "A picture is worth a 1000 words."

From the looks of it, I'm guessing three strings. A quick count of 25-30 lights per letter with a total of at least 300 lights.

a Plywood sign (but small enough the wind wont pick it up).. and paint in a BRIGHT color your station and above it paint tune to...

Thats what we used and we also put a mini spot light on it.. Worked great!

I use a combo of the LED Triks and a camera box / plexiglas sign.
