Signal and Power Distance Test Just in case someone looks for "real world" results

Signal and Power Distance Test

Just in case someone looks for “real world” results in the future.

The short story is…
A 51-LED strip powered by 5-volts from a salvaged computer power supply, over 100 feet of 18-gauge wire, and controlled by FastLED on an Arduino Mega 2560 over a 100-foot 24-gauge telephone extension cable (signal and ground wire from Arduino to strip).
…worked!
