Runway lighting controller on the fritz

The Fly-By-Night switch that permits radio control of our runway lights has gone on the fritz. Unfortunately, it’s an older unit, a BB-7, built by Subil Enterprises, which is now out of business.

The Fly-By-Night switch that permits radio control of our runway lights has gone on the fritz. Unfortunately, it’s an older unit, a BB-7, built by Subil Enterprises, which is now out of business. The new company has no association with the original.

Does anyone have a schematic or other manual for this system that they will loan us? Does anyone have any experience with this system and can help us get back into operation?

    Ramsey Electronics (800-446-2295) sells a digital base station receiver plus the runway lighting controller add-on, including interface, case, and power supply.

    $200 for the radio as a kit, $270 assembled, $60 for the lighting controller as a kit, $100 assembled.

    If you can solder SMALL electronic parts, you can save $100 or so – if not, $370 gets you up and running with modern equipment.

    No affilliation by the way.
