Alas, I don't know anything about compiling on the Mac, but you can ignore the invalid conversion warnings as the compiler can usually resolve those types of warnings. Did you reboot the machine after installing the drivers? I don't know about the Mac, but sometimes driver installation on some versions of Windows doesn't "take" for all applications until the DLL gets registered by the op system. Can't hurt to try.

Okay, now it compiles, but it doesn't recognize the Arduino. I installed the CH340 driver, but it didn't help. Anything else I am missing?

That did it, thanks. I should have remembered that myself, not the first time I experienced it.

For what its worth, I had a similar error (function does not return a value) on the macbook. The same code compiled on the win10 system. Updating the arduino ide for the mac to the latest version resolved the compile error.

That helps, but now I get other errors. There are also lots of warnings.

invalid conversion from 'const byte* {aka const unsigned char*}' to 'uint8_t* {aka unsigned char*}' [-fpermissive]

I don't think Farhan meant to return anything from the function. As a test, change the function's signature from:

   int menuBand(int btn){


   void menuBand(int btn){

and see what happens. I didn't see any statements in any of the files where a return value from menuBand() is used in an assignment statement, so it should be OK using void.

I am integrating my uBitx into an old HA 350 receiver  chassis. It has a band switch on it, so I want to program A7 to read the switch. I downloaded several different versions of code to find a good starting point. When I use any of Farhan's versions, I get a compile error: 
return-statement with no value, in function returning 'int' [-fpermissive]
It is a return in ubitx_menu in the if(!btn) statement that causes this.

I tried Ron, W2CTX's ubitx_V2_00R and i see what looks like coding errors, although it compiles. The error is that A7 is not declared, and digital dash is declared as A3. A3 is PTT
KD8CEC's uBitx_20 compiles. 

Any input on which code is best would be appreciated. I would also like to know how to fix the compiling error so I can reinstall the factory code if I need to.
