Today, I was informed that ROCI is replacing the WLCS-2 system with a different commercial system. I plan to finish some changes that I have designed for the club's system and return it to ROCI as it is owned by them. Future software changes that are compatible with the current system will be offered to ROCI as they become available. 

I wish you well on whatever system you adopt.

Ok, maybe one more feature before I freeze the code and feature set…

FWIW, the pad controllers that I have (L-A thru L-D) have been repaired and updated to new firmware. The other boxes (R-A thru R-D) will need to be updated to the new firmware in order to work. I plan to do that in the morning so you will have a backup launch system. The firmware for this system in now complete. Future versions will be designed for additional hardware. I will maintain a backup of the schematics and source code for future reference. 

This update also changes the operating frequency of the system as I believe that interference from another device is the source of the problems you have been having.

All of the club system has been upgraded and returned to John except one pad controller box that had other issues. That box has now been repaired and will be returned to John at his convenience. I’ve forked the design and code to preserve documentation and source code for this design. I can maintain it and/or make it available to you guys on a thumb drive. Your choice.

On to WLCS-3… the new boards have been designed using mostly surface mounted components that are installed by the board fabricator. This will certainly save me a ton of time and, surprisingly, is a bit cheaper than sourcing many of these components myself. The new board design prototype should be in my hands by the end of the week.
