Setting CW options in uBITX with Nextion LCD (Version 1.097)
This document is intended to explain before you deploy 'CEC Firmware Version 1.097'
CEC Firmware Version 1.097 will be released within one week.
1.CW Options settings in Nextion LCD
Added the ability to set CW Options at GUI by user's request.
Of course, CW options can be set in the same way as Character LCD. We call it Text mode. However, we added the CW option setting function in Version 1.097 so that it is more convenient in the GUI and can be quickly changed during CW operation.
Below are the menus for changing CW options in the same way as the Character LCD. If you are more familiar with this method, you can use this method as is.
Push the Function Switch
CW Speed Menu
CW Side tone Menu
CW Delay time Menu
CW Start Delay (for external device such as Linear or Band selector) Menu
CW Key type Menu
Example of Select Key Type
2. How to Set CW Options in the GUI #1
This method replaces the method used in the existing Character LCD.
(CEC Firmware Version 1.097 or later, GUI Version 3 or later)
Touch CW Information Panel to switch to Main Control screen
Version 1.097 added 'CW SETUP' menu.
Touch the 'CW SETUP' Button
This is the 'CW SETUP' screen.
Below is the change of CW Key to Straight.
After completing the settings, touch the 'Save & Reboot' button.
You can see the change in the CW information panel on the bottom left.
CW Speed, Side Tone, Delay can be set. This setting is stored in EEProm, so the settings you changed will be retained even if uBITX is rebooted.
3. How to Set CW Options in the GUI #2
This is a quick way to change during CW operations
A new button has been added to the lower right corner of the main screen.
Touch the button to display the CW configuration change menu.
If you touch the button again, return to the ATT, IFS menu.
You will see a button that allows you to change CW Speed and Key type immediately.
Touch Morse Key ICON to change to 'Straight', 'IAMBICA', 'IAMBICB' order. Changes made here are not stored in memory.
During CW operation, you can easily increase or decrease the speed according to the speed of the other person.
Below is a reboot screen. The Key Type setting has been restored.
There is an example in the video below.
