DCC: Overview Monday July 4 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Jim Betz Convention Center 310
What is DCC? And what it isn't! This clinic is targetted to those of us who are still on the fence or who have newly installed DCC - and just want some help in understanding the basics of how DCC works and a few "best practices".
DCC, Intro

DCC: Programming Decoders Monday July 4 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Jim Betz Convention Center 310
An introduction to the process of setting up a decoder. The focus will be on the use of DecoderPro (JMRI) to set the address, motor control, lights, and a simple approach to speed matching - and upon de-mystifying the concepts. This clinic is targetted to those who are relatively new to the topic and will -not- cover advanced topics. Programming sound decoders will be touched upon briefly.
