Thanks so much for everyone's replies. Whew, I'm getting great info from
you people. I've probably got every electronics book I could find from "Half
Price Books" and also Googled till my eyes were bloodshot but this group has
been critical to my successes on many projects.
I simulated many configurations with cascading the 74LS193 up-down binary
counters and hit on this design that does what I'd hoped.
I'll try and breadboard this first chance I get, I don't always trust
