I have built up some buffer/booster amplifiers for the TMCC/Legacy 455 KHz track signal, and I need volunteers to test the prototypes to help me determine if this is a viable product idea. I am primarily looking for operators with large layouts that have already tried the well-documented fixes such as ground-signal improvements, but still have troublesome areas on their layouts. This is a 'brute force' solution to the problem that can typically provide five times as much signal to the track.
Beta testers will be required to conduct a short sequence of test measurements using equipment that I provide to compare "before" and "after" signal strength, and then run any troublesome trains to evaluate the amount of improvement.
I already have some field test data, and it looks quite promising, but moving forward requires enough of a monetary investment that I don't want to run off half-cocked.
Interested parties should probably contact me directly at (805) 529-2496 for more information.
