Re: Rotary encoder

Vince Vielhaber

I use one of those optical encoders for a different vfo, but I did test it with a bitx40 raduino first. It works but be forewarned. There are MANY more pulses per revolution than the one that comes with the uBitx. Your code will need to ignore a lot of the pulses that it puts out. Now on the other hand, a nice weighted knob and you can give that thing a spin and it'll go for a good long time!!!

I'm currently building a DDS-VFO for a Drake TR7 that will be using a 400 pulse optical encoder.

Installing an optical rotary encoder doesn’t seem that simple.
This still requires hardware changes with the addition of a splitter
and/or soft changes. PB of numbers of PPM
For the moment, I will only ask this question: */"Is there an optical
rotary encoder possible replacement without any further modification?"/*
