RailPro Discussion & Help / steel wall stud construction
« on: November 18, 2019, 05:04:10 PM »
As I consider construction of my long-awaited train room, I would like to know whether using steel wall studs would create problems for the Railpro system (as well as cell phone and wi-fi).  Metal framing is a lot lighter (it's going up to the third floor attic, and it's going to be a big room), but it surely would be frustrating if it ruined the room's primary purpose.

Any experience or knowledgeable replies would be appreciated.


I haven't seen this  system in use, but it looks enticing to those who might wish for "big" sound from our tiny speakers.  I am curious whether anyone has experience with this or similar radio sound relay to a large speaker system?  Could RailPro's radio capability be used to drive a speaker through a signal relay/amplifier?  It obviously would take some tweaking of the LM-xS' output to either utilize the module's internal radio transmitter, or installation of a 'jury-rigged' radio relay.  Sadly, my electronics memories are not up to the task, but the concept seems ideal to the RailPro format.

Just a curious idea:  any thoughts?
