Hello; first post for me here. I've recently added the Hare ( http://dccspecialties.com/products/hare-ng.htm ) New Generation stationary decoder to my new layout. It goes without saying that I'm also using Tortoise switch motors since the Hare is designed for use with it. I can't say that any part of installing these was difficult (other then threading the tortoise's wire through the little hole in the turnout and connecting it to the tortoise (I found it easy to go top-down when space allowed). This can be complicated when the placement is tight due to table construction. However, I am having some technical difficulties in setting the Hare's address and then programming the CVs. The procedure I am following seems to work half the time and fail the other half. This is preventing me from attempting to set routes (I believe this feature to be more complex to setup). If you are familiar with the procedure for programming the Hare, please help correct what I am doing wrong--especially if you have a Zephyr system, too. Addressing: Turn on the Zephyr. Set one Hare to Programming mode (involves switching a jumper on the device) Apply power to the track (power button on Zephyr). Press switch button Press numbers to define address, say 101 Press 'c' or 't' (clear or throw) Remove power from rail Reset Hare jumper The manual says that sending a command to an address should be enough to define the address for the decoder. Programming: Turn on Zephyr Set one Hare to programming mode Apply power to the track Press prog button several times until OPS is displayed. Hit the CV button Hit the numbers for the CV to program Hit CV Hit numbers to set the value of the CV Hit CVWR to write the value Remove power from track Move Hare jumper back to run mode When I follow this procedure, periodically, the Hare gets addressed as a value that it shouldn't be, so going to Switch mode, punching in the address and saying 'clear' or 'throw' results in no joy. When I attempt to set other CV values such as throw speed, startup default position, etc, the Hare sometimes leaves this state on an address that I don't know. (Who knows if the CVs are set right since I can't use the device at this point Any insight anyone can lend would be greatly appreciated. The route setting options are looming on the horizon, but until I can get this black box firmly under my control, I fear treading into those settings.
