Using memory channels in uBITX (Storing / recalling frequencies / naming channels)

Using memory channels in uBITX
Storing / recalling frequencies / naming channels in uBITX

This function is supported in uBITX Firmware CEC Version 1.0 or later.

At the bottom of this document is a video shot while creating the manual.

1.Storing Frequency and mode
  - Turn the dial to set the desired frequency.


 - Press the Function Key


- Turn the dial until 'VFO To Channel' Appears



- Press the function key
The channel will be visible.
If you are using this function for the first time, you will see an empty frequency like 'CH01:'.


- Rotate the DIAL until the desired channel appears.



- Press the Function key
'Saved Frequency' message appears and hide


- The current frequency has been saved with the mode you chose.




2.Naming Channel
  This feature is to give the channel a name.
  You can only use the Name tag from channel 1 to channel 10.

- Execute uBITX Manager , Set Comport, baud, stopbit, data bit, parity and Press the Connect button


- Press the Read Button


- Press the Decode Button


- Scroll Down, You will see the User Channel Configuration section.


- You can check the frequency stored in # 1 above.


-Enter a name for each channel. (the channel you want)


- Check 'Name' Check Box.
  Only checked channels are displayed by name.



- Press the Encode Button



- Press the Write to uBITX Button


- The addresses that need to be saved are shown below.
  Press the Write Button


-


-Press the Close button

the channel was given the name you defined.


3.Load Frequency with mode
- Press the Function Key


- Turn the dial until 'Channel to VFO?' Appears


-Press the Function Key
You will see the name, not the channel number.







-Channels without a name tag are channel number appears.

- Select the channel to load with VFO.


- Press the Function Key
The channel frequency will be loaded into the VFO.

  1. How many channels can you add? Even a few will be fine though.

      and 10 without names.
      Increasing the channel is not a problem.
      You only need to change the number to increase the channel. n order to use the eeprom efficiently, I decided to set it to about 20.

How to upgrade uBITX Firmware

uBITX is based on Arduino Nano. So uBITX's firmware upgrade method is the same as Arduino.
There are two ways to upgrade the firmware of uBITX.

The first is to compile the source from the Arduino IDE, and the second is to upload the compiled hex file using the Firmware Upgrade Tool.

I'll show you how to upload a compiled hex file as a second method.

1.Connect the uBITX's USB cable to the computer.


2.Run Device Manager on your computer.
  The way to open the Device Manager for each OS Version differs slightly.
  In most Windows, you can easily launch the Device Manager by running.

  On your computer, press the Windows key + R.



 Type devmgmt.msc and press OK Button.




On most operating systems, there will be a serial port named Ports with CH340. If so, the next step is skipped.

If the serial port is not installed as below, you need to install the driver.



Included in uBITX is the Adonano, which uses the CH340 USB To UART part.

Download the latest CH340 driver from the Internet.

CAT Support uBITX Firmware CEC Version 1.06 Release (Added WSPR)

uBITX Firmware CEC Version v1.06 (changed v1.061)

I deployed 1.06 and received feedback from WSPR's beta tester, Philip (G7JUR).
It was a problem that the LPF was not automatically selected according to band selection during WSPR transmission.

I modified it soon and changed uBITX Firmware CEC Version to 1.061.
uBITX Manager also changed Version to 1.01.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I released version 1.06 which added WSPR function to uBITX.
Beta testers have been very helpful when embedding WSPR functionality. WSPR will continue to improve in the future.

By using WSPR before and after QSO, you can check where your uBITX is spreading all over the world.  If uBITX Manager is used to put WSPR information into uBITX, uBITX no longer needs any external device to transmit WSPR.

The uBITX group's excellent tester also shared a way to use CW Beacon using the Autokey feature (Autokey is a memory keyer built into CEC Firmware.) I will…

CAT Support uBITX Firmware CEC Version 1.01 Release(Changed from v1.0)

CAT Support uBITX Firmware CEC Version 1.01  Release (Changed from v1.0)

uBITX Firmware CEC Version 1.06 has been released.

This version of the concept is an upgrade without hardware modifications. No hardware modifications are required to use this firmware. Continuous release and testing has been done in the uBITX group. I tried to put only the basic functions that an HF transceiver should have. The features have been upgraded with the advice of people who have great ideas in the uBITX group.
It was a project that started to contribute to the original source in github. The project was intended to fix some simple bugs and request merge to the original source. And I was planning to delete the project. At the beginning of the project there was a bit of discussion about this in the uBITX group.
Since then, I've keeping the original source type to allow code share with any user fork…
