(SOLVED) Key shortcut for changing frq in Satellite External Radio?

#1

Unread post by SM0TGU »

Hello,
in the Satellite External Radio window, it is possible to change frequency of the connected external radio with mouse click or mousewheel over the displayed frequency.
Question: is it possible to control frequency change with keys / shortcut keys?

Hi Lars

I see nobody responded. I'm not an expert on the Sat functions, but can you show a screenshot of which window you mean?

Hi Lars

I'm sorry, that confirms I do not know as I don't use this feature. Is there anything in here of use?

I have made a formal request for "tracking VFOs", but I know Simon has a lot of requests. This is not a big issue, my idea was to create a script with Autohotkey that would tune the external radio VFO with shortcuts keys at the same time when tuning the RX VFO with the arrow keys.
But... it works fine today also, tuning manually and find yourself in the RX waterfall from the satellite downlink.

I have made a solution for this with AutoHotKey script and a virtual VFO knob. Please see:

Lars, please give some more info, do you want to change the uplink or downlink frequency?

I don't have a external TX but playing with my R75 (rx) i come to the following conclusions:

On your picture the Ext. Radio is OFF but when it is ON than you can change the DL frequency with the mouse wheel, like in Console.
In that case the External Radio (RX and TX +/- doppler) follows only when DOPPLER is activated.

Set Doppler to Off if you only want to change the UL freq. Changing the UL freq (tx) has to be done with the RIG's VFO knob.

@PD3LK Sorry I do not understand your question.
Actually, my virtual VFO knob (as you can see at my GitHub) solves all the problems described in my first post in this thread.
