My Minima Controller Alternate Tuning Method Help Text
Tuning Knob Operations, used for both Frequency and RIT Tuning POT = Incremental Near Center Tuning POT = Auto Increment Near Extremes Tuning POT = Faster Auto Increment At Extremes Button Operations Btn1 is the original Minima FN Button Btn2-Btn7 are added, see: http://goo.gl/Ca1JUz Btn1 Single_Press = Toggle RIT Mode ON/OFF Btn1 Double_Press = Swap A/B VFO's, Cancels any Pending Edit-IF-Freq Btn1 Long_Press = VFO Copy, A>B or B>A Btn2 Single_Press = Left, Move Frequency Cursor Btn3 Single_Press = Right, Move Frequency Cursor Btn4 Single_Press = Select: USB, LSB, or Auto USB (default) Btn4 Double_Press = Saves User-Preferences to Non-Volatile Memory Btn4 Long_Press = Loads User-Preferences from Non-Volatile Memory Btn4 Alt_PressFN = Toggle Split Operation ON/OFF Btn4 Alt_PressLF = Starts CW Macro MSG1, Key down to abort Btn4 Alt_PressRT = Starts CW Macro MSG2, Key down to abort Btn5 Single_Press = Up, Change HAM Band (saves current Freq and SSB Mode) Btn6 Single_Press = Down, Change HAM Band (saves current Freq and SSB Mode) Btn7 Single_Press = Toggle Tune 2500Hz Mode ON/OFF Btn7 Long_Press = Display, and Edit IF-Freq, Saves IF-Freq Btn7 Alt_PressLF = Starts QRSS Beacon Macro MSG1, Key down to abort Btn7 Alt_PressRT = Starts QRSS Beacon Macro MSG2, Key down to abort Where: "Alt_PressFN" = First press a BtnN (while holding) quickly press FN and release FN, then release BtnN "Alt_PressLT" = First press a BtnN (while holding) quickly press LEFT and release LEFT, then release BtnN "Alt_PressRT" = Similar to LEFT IF Frequency Adjustment (Dial Calibration) 1. Select a Sideband 2. Adjust VFO Display to the expected Zero Beat Frequency of a Standard 3. Long-Press btn7 4. Zero Beat, adjust as necessary with the Cursor and Dial, or the RIT 5. To Complete Calibration, Long-Press btn7 (or, to abort IF CAL - Double-Press FN) 6. To Save to Non-Volatile Memory Double-Press btn4 7. Do the same for the other Sideband User-Preferences The Current Saved/Loaded User-Preference Include: The Current Band, Frequency and Sideband Selection The Last Frequency and Sideband used within each Ham Bands USB and LSB IF-Freq Adjustments The Current VFO "A/B" (or "I" if in IF-Freq Edit Mode) Excluded from User-Preferences Save/Load are: RIT Cursor Position The goal of saved User-Preferences is to return the Receiver to a previously saved configuration at the next Power-ON or Processor Reset. Factory Reset = Holding any Button at Power-ON or Processor Reset. Note: previously saved User-Preference can be re-loaded with another Power-ON, Reset, or with the Load Button. Error and Status Messages Load Fail = The internal Non-Volatile ID does not match the current Rev of the Save/Load code, please re-save User-Preferences. Load Fail CSum = The internal Check-Sum of the Non-Volatile Memory does not match as expected, please re-save User-Preferences. Loading nnnB = This is the size of the User-Preferences Loaded from Non-Volatile Memory. Storing nnnB = This is the size of the User-Preferences Saved to Non-Volatile Memory.
Note: When the IF Frequency is Set to Zero, the Controller can be used as a handy signal source. The software is available at:
