    I work in a area that controls medical helicopter flights and I would like to have a panel at 3 different dispatch stations that show the weather status of both of our helicopters:

    The 3 different status's are

    Green-(Clear to Fly)
    Red---(Can't Fly)
    Amber-(Pilot will make decision about flying)

    I would like LED's and push button switches to be able to change the status from any of the 3 stations and it will change all the others.

    My dilemma is how to wire it up.

    Can anyone give me some ideas.

    Thanks Randy

    In order to choose the proper resistor values, one would need to know the applied DC voltage and the specs for the LEDs.

    If this runs outdoors, I suggest gel-filled cable.
