Decade Counter!

I wanted a way to have a “rotatable” counter to indicate that the LCC was still looping properly.  I finally found something! A decade counter (as noted in an earlier post)!

Now instead of pulsing one led I have a “spinner” type of effect. I don’t have to keep track of where the “count” is….I just pulse it. Coding this would have been a nightmare. Of course wiring 10 LEDs is a mess but it’s a cool one.
