Ian,

I am running beta 1.094 and it is great. Thanks for your hard work.

You mentioned that 1.095 was ready for release but I am not able to locate it.  Can your point me to it?

Thanks,

Pat AA4PG

Charlie :

You will need to add the two additional resistors if you want to use paddles on CW with the KD8CEC firmware.

Also you would require a hardware mod for the S-meter functionality on the 2.8" display to work.

Other features like IF-Shift and ATT don't require any additional mods to rig. 

I will let you know if there is anything else.

Saturday is Field Day here in NA so I will busy, but I hope to get my
new display up and running on Sunday. 

Cheers

The upgrade is basically to parts:

1. Install the new UBITX KD8CEC Nextion supported firmware.
2. Install the Nextion code file into the Nextion display :
    a. either by adding it (.tft file) to the microsd card and rebooting nextion display - then remove microsd card and reboot or
    b. uploading it from the Nextion Editor to the Nextion Display

No mods required to add a nextion display.

Only requires +5volts and gnd for power.

Two wires for connection to connector where old displayed plugged into.

The firmware must be the version which supports Nextion Displays.

I have also ordered a Nextion 2.8 display, but to run KD8CEC firmware, do I need to do any mods to the Ubitx? Thinking here of the CW side of things or does it implement the 2 resistor solution for paddles?

Terence : 

After you get the KD8CEC firmware loaded I recommend that you also install his uBITX Memory Manager application on your PC. 

One very useful feature is the ability to read and decode the current data/settings from the Raduino and save them to a file on your 
computer.  I recommend doing this right away before using it to modify any settings so that you have a baseline to return to should 
something get messed up later. This is especially important if you decide to try recalibration.

Cheers

P.S. I got my Nextion 2.8" TFT Display so when a get some time this weekend I plan to move to KD8CEC V1.09b and give that I try.
I think that this display is going to be a "game changer" for this rig.

I do have one question, will the Raduino retain the alignment settings, or will I have to redo all of the alignment steps?
