I wrote a program in "processing" that allows me to control my 6300 over CAT with the Hercules DJ Instinct.
VFOA Freq w/variable speed
VFOB Freq w/variable speed
I am somewhat limited with CAT. DDUTIL adds in additional CAT commands (DD6) that will do most of what else I want. However I cant seem to get the DDUTIL commands to work. So if anyone has experience using DDUTIL commands. Please help me out!
Anyway here is a short video, sorry about the shaking! :)
1. displays Flex model in app window
2. displays Mode in app window.
3. Updated parsing of received data from radio (UDP and TCP )
William, my one is arrived :-), just small comments:
1. apps not supporting High Screen resolution, I am using iMac 5K with Parallels for Win
sorry too small for my eyes :-)
2. Strange behavior with Balance A-B: moving slider from the left end to the right end change positions of the slice in the headphones? as it planned?
3. No reaction in SSDR Volume A or Volume B sliders in case moving Vol A or Vol B sliders on CMD?
4. Selectable steps are 10Hz or 100Hz only
this is report with ver 1_3
i guess my report helpful
external atu =false;
To swap ATU for Tune if you have external ATU. Just edit this file as follows:
external atu =true;
To swap RF Power for Headphone vol, Just edit this file as follows:
external atu =false;
In var.txt edit the following line to "true" if you would like step sizes of (1hz/10hz vs 10hz/100hz);
external atu =false;
Just for your Sergey !!!
Defaults are red;
Top Right dial = RF
Step toggles 10/100hz
Click on each in the App window and they turn blue, which means;
Top Right dial = Headphones
Step toggles 1/10hz
These toggles replace the true/false entries in the var.txt file.
What do yall think?
Ill post the code later tonight.
Toggles in this version;
Swaps ATU <> TUNE
Swaps RF <> Headphone
Swaps Step - 1/10hz<>10/100hz
Swaps slice Volume <> AGC-T
Red are default values/ Blue means new value
Give it a try
A minor update to v1.8. In v1.9 you can now save your defaults for the new Toggles added in v1.8. A save button was added in the lower right corner. After you save, next time you start CMDMicroFlex6k the toggles will remain in the state you choose.
In the DJ world this would be used for Jog and nudge. Spinning the wheel using your finger placed on the center metal section is JOG, and spinning the wheel touching the outside plastic section is Nudge.
One thing I have noticed is fine tuning without indents is very touchy.
So I decided to use the DJ logic in the CMD Micro. If you spin the wheel from the outside (aka nudge) it slows the sensitivity down 5 times, allowing easier fine adjustment. Spin the wheel with your finger from the center metal portion and its normal speed.
This is actually very intuitive and does not require any thought or practice.
I'm uploading a video and will past link shortly. Let me know if you like this idea!
Outstanding work on your part, and generous of you to share it freely ! 73
So...have you thought about using this controller? Same company, so may not be hard to interface with? Might be good for folks who only use one vfo primarily? Not even sure if it'd be compatible with what you are doing.
The LED's in the encoders/ slider will show same value as SmartSDR. But this means I have to parse a ton more data.
Also think I will make the step button switch between 1/10/50 then add a step x10 button for fast movement. So when on 10hz step the x10 button will switch it to 100, and 50 to 500, etc etc.
This will be my most extensive project to date, but I think it will be AWSOME when its done.
For the CMD PL1 I will need much more data from the radio. Currently the CMD micro only queries Freq, slice, mode. So I started a new parse routine to use with the PL1. Currently the parsing is working good for Freq,slice,mode,pan,agc,slice vol,balance,tx low,tx high, rx low, rx high, bandwidth for slice A and B. I still need to add in Main volume and a few others.
So that was the biggest hurdle. If anyone cares to look at how I did this;
I have the CMD PL-1 partially working. Wow this guy has my head spinning. Its taken me a good amount of time to figure this guy out. The Deck button switches channels, and this is actually sorta a pain.
So far I have the VFO working with steps 1/10/50hz and the x10 button . Also I have waterfall bandwidth, main vol, headphone vol, vfo vol working.
This controller is surely more of a challenge, but I will get all the functions working with time. I just wish I could control the deck selection via software, so it would just cycle 1-2 only.
I have a video uploading that shows the above functions working that I will post in a bit.
