BLI Keep Alive Coming Soon
Author: D0wnt1me

So after frying my paragon 2 decoder attempting to install a tcs keep alive, I contacted BLI to purchase a replacement decoder.

Anywho, in the one of my emails with their repair shop team, a representative mentioned that BLI was working on producing their own keep alives that would plug into Paragon 3 decoders. Has anyone else heard of this? Plugging in would definitely beat frying the decoder!

I'd also like to compliment BLI on their customer service; quick, speedy, and knowledgeable!

That would be great news.
Were do I line up to buy some.  I have quite a few BLI locos. I wish they would have it fit Paragon 2 as well.

I think if I was going to replace a Paragon 2 decoder to add keep-alive, a Paragon 3 probably wouldn't be my first choice in a replacement decoder. Maybe if I was invested in the Rolling Thunder system, but I'm not (but our club is).

What are Paragon 3 decoders running for?

I payed $50 for my Paragon 2 replacement decoder so 3s should be around that price range.

Don't give up on attaching keep alives to "other" decoders not "keep alive ready".

Look at the section for "decoders not shown" on this page for guidance.
