We need help on our lighting controller

Our radio-controlled runway lighting system has died and we’re trying to find out how to fix it.

Our airpark has pilot controlled runway lighting that is activated by a
Model RS-7 Radio-Controlled Switch made by Thompson-International Aviation,
Hereford, AZ. I called the number on the case (602-366-5482) but got a
recording saying that the number has been disconnected. A quick web search
did not help.

This unit is currently kaput (a WWII German term meaning that probably means
that it’s heaved all of its sauerkraut!) Opening it up, I have found it to
be a well-constructed unit and probably worth fixing. Do you know where I
might find a schematic for this unit?

Many thanks,

    I have purchesed a new reciever and you can activate a relay by just clicking on the freq five times, is that something you would be interested in? The air park won’t let me us it. Its set up to activate a strob but you can hook it up to the lights and it will time it out.

    Frank, where did you purchase the reciever? I would like to install a cheap set of lights if they are available. I’m setting up a strip with just 12 houses on it and there won’t be much night flying, but it would be nice to find the runway if I need to. Mark
