    Dan,

    That won't work in So. Calif. You need to get a different type of receptor or viewer that will show a larger range of results.

    Enjoy,

    laugh it up you clowns ok, i'm adding a pic of the rest of the display. along side of the text (that's to the left larry), i will have 3 colored lights, red, yellow, and green, in that order from top to bottom. in the lower right hand corner is the on/off switch, which will be a generic reset button, with a small white light above that to show that it's on or off (don't want to confuse larry too much). then there will be a slot routed in the base for the battery.
