 +===== Transponding & Rocrail =====
 +Transponding can be ordered to the same category as Lissy and RailCom but uses another technique.\\
 + \\
 +With the basic transponding decoders the following info is received by Rocrail:
 +  * decoder address
 +  * BDL168 board number
 +  * zone A, B, C, D, E, F, G or H
 + \\
 +More advanced transponding decoders can supply also:
 +  * operations mode readback of decoder CVs
 +  * information about the speed and other status data
 +  * surround sound system support
 + \\
 +
 + \\
 +===== Addressing =====
 +To avoid conflicts with the current sense addressing bus 2 is used for the transponder receivers.\\
 +So if the board address is set to **1** the first transponder receiver will report in Rocrail with address **2-1**, and the first sensor with address **0-1**. (bus-address)\\
 +
 +The BDL168 transponder addresses increment by 2, not 1.  This means with board address 2 that Zone A is 1, Zone B is 3, etc.  See this table:\\
 +
 + \\
 +
 +^ Board 1 RX's ^^^
 +^ Zone ^ Bus ^ Address ^
 +| A | 1 | 1 |
 +| B | 1 | 3 |
 +| C | 1 | 5 |
 +| D | 1 | 7 |
 +| E | 1 | 9 |
 +| F | 1 | 11 |
 +| G | 1 | 13 |
 +| H | 1 | 15 | \\
