    Default Introductions

    I thought it would be cool for the Oklahoma people to have a Forum, since there are at least 8 of us.

    This will be my first year to have a computer controlled xmas. I have 4 olsen 595's, and enough SSR's to support those. (Just waiting on the parts COOP to arrive,I will probably only use 2 of the 595's this year.) I am also planning on making a LEDTRIKs sign, Im just waiting for the PCB. I live in Moore.

    I thought this would be a good place for oklahoma people to ask each other questions and get troubleshooting tips, since there are a few pros among us in the OKC,Tulsa and Broken Bow area. Could also be a good way to trade parts and pieces since everyone is so close.

    This will be my first year to have a computer controlled Christmas also. I'm using a custom designed 128 channel, dimming controller. I'll probably only use 96 channels this year. I haven't decided yet if I will sync to music or just have it sequence through a couple of routines. I'm concerned with the traffic issues in my neighborhood.

    I live in Norman.

    I also thought traffic might be a problem but it was only bad one night after channel 6 did a report on my setup.

    I still get a kick out of that. There was no way they were going to get in the way of what you had to say!

    This is my 4th year doing this. It started with a Hill 320 controller with just lights being turned on and off then I moved to sequencing with music last year. This year I will be using the Olson 595 and the hill 320 to controller upto 192 channels.

    I live in Broken Arrow.

    Greeting from Edmond Oklahoma. Its nice to see lots of people in Oklahoma with this cool hobby!! I'm a beginner, with this coming year being my first display. I'm planning on between 48-72 dimming channels and hopefully will have at least six songs sequenced by then. I've played around with homebuilt 595 boards a little without much luck so am waiting on a coop order to get really serious. I've started playing with a demo of LOR's software after last Christmas and switched over to Vixen after I saw how much it was going to cost buying one of their systems and software. Maybe we can set up a get-together in few months to compare ideas.

    Hey guys,
    I live in Del City and I did a show last year for the first. What a blast that was. I had 63 channels running from an Olsen 595. I was planning on doing over 250 channels of dimming this year but the NAVY wants me to away for most of December so I decided to hold off for this year. I bought all the lights that I needed last year during the 50% off sales right after Christmas. With that said…………..
    If you need lights and you feel like driving to the Del City area I am willing to sell you some lights for a $1 a box. I don’t have the time to box them up and ship them but I will make time for someone local to pick them up. I can also meet you somewere local. I just might have other spare parts to help you out in a pinch. Just ask and I will see what I can do.

    Jeff
