Welcome to 2018
Well we finished out 2017 with 114,904 views, a 19% increase over 2016, so the word seems to be getting out. We’ll see what happens in 2018. Without the book to distract me I plan to do a few more videos and also expand the followup between my DCC Corner columns and posts here. You’ve already seen the columns for January and February, but I’ll give you a hint about March—I feature a poor man’s keep alive, something I came up with 30 years ago when I was using CTC16 command control. After that we’ll take a look at sound decoders including replacing a factory installed sound decoder in a diesel locomotive. There will be other decoder installations plus more on keep alive circuits, programming LokSound decoders and using their LokProgrammer software. Right now I have DCC Corner column topics planned out through the middle of 2019 and the website hosting fee is paid up through 2018 so I’ll probably be at it for another year at least. And if you get bored there are several hundred prior posts covering a range of subjects so feel free to either browse through the archives or do a search for specific topics you may be interested in. As always if you have a question or nagging problem feel free to contact me.
