KD8CEC now "working" on Raspberry Pi Pico
Just uploaded experimental support for KD8CEC running on the Raspberry Pi Pico. This required relocating the encoder, encoder button and PTT lines off of the Analog pins. They are now located (on Pico) on gpio pins:
#define ENC_A 17
#define ENC_B 18
#define FBUTTON 19
#define PTT 22
Gerbers for a corresponding Raduino with this pinout (v5/v6 support) is located at:
These Gerbers require the ability to solder surface mount components. In particular, the si5351 can be challenging.
The original uBITX Memory Manager will *not* work with this platform. An alternative set of python based applications that provide backup, restore, and customizations is available at:
You will need to be "python" smart to get these alternative replacement for the uBTIX Memory Manager to work. They are not perfect, but should be useful. A GUI version that fully replaces the uBTIX memory manager is underdevelopment. At that point, I will also improved the packaging so that non-python folks an install it and use it.
NOTE: ALL THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL WORK! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK (AND ENJOYMENT!)
