I was finding it hard to find all the links to the things, so I put the uBITX Firmware CEC on its own page and updated it to this latest info
https://groups.io/g/BITX20/wiki/uBITX-Firmware-CEC-by-KD8CEC 

Thank you Ian for all your amazing work!
Happy 1.08 customer on uBITX v3.

I will try to remember Jack's suggestion to atouk. This is something I need to learn when get the software installed.

Ivo,
You need to look at the links Dr. Ian gives on his blog or download the manual.

You can do that yourself. If you don't know how to change the firmwear, there are a bazillion links online to show you how. May as well learn, as there may be other things you'd like to change down the road. Near line 1200 in setup(), you will find code similar to:

  if (userCallsignLength > 0 && ((userCallsignLength & 0x80) == 0x80)) {
    userCallsignLength = userCallsignLength & 0x7F;
    printLineFromEEPRom(0, 0, 0, userCallsignLength -1, 0); //eeprom to lcd use offset (USER_CALLSIGN_DAT)
    delay(2000UL);        // Increase from 500
  }
  else {
    printLineF(0, F("uBITX v0.20"));
    delay(2000UL);        // Increase from 500
    clearLine2();
  }
 

The line in YELLOW will increase the delay time from a half second to two seconds.

One tiny quibble.

Can you make the version display delay on startup a bit longer.  It flies by too fast to read.

You can download HEX file and uBITX Manager from the link above. You can also download the source code at https://github.com/phdlee/ubitx and see all the changes I've made so far. If there is a non-critical bug in the public version, I will link to the new firmware in the above blog.

I just made a firmware upgrade to version 1.08 but I can not see S-meter. What is "100Hz" and "ST" on the first line? Thank you for the explanation.
