Re: Replacing the Rotary Encoder #ubitx

There is a #define in the Lib to change Pulses.

Some encoders throw 4 pulses per detent. You just have to experiment a little.

Your post highlights a situation that has come up before.  Some builders seem
to like the smooth feel of a big heavy knob with no detents on their rotary
encoders.  Others seem to prefer the solid positioning feel of a rotary encoder
with detents. 

My personal experience is that the non-detent encoders sometimes slip a
setting or two when pushing the knob to activate the switch on the same
shaft.  If using a separate switch then the non-detent encoders work fine.

Some of the encoders I purchased from Ebay suppliers have one-step-per-
detent, and others have two-steps-per-detent.  This was confusing until I
realized what was happening and added a line of code to swallow one step
on the two-steps-per-detent encoders.

My junque box has a Keyes rotary encoder mounted on a small PCB with DuPont compatible header attached.  On the back are two 10k SMD resistors.  I like the Keyes better because it has detents when you spin it.  Should I be able to directly replace the stock encoder with it?  It, too, has a center-push switch.  Five lines out:  CLK, DT, SW, +, SW.
