I've just received my Contour ShuttleXpress tuning knob and have set it up to work with HRD 5 driving my Yaesu FT-817.
I searched the forum for guidance, but all the threads were very old and didn't really help very much. However, setting up the ShuttleXpress is fairly straightforward and makes a tremendous difference when tuning the rig using HRD.
If anybody wants my setting file to play with, you would be most welcome.
Basic setup is:
- Centre 'jog' wheel is coarse tune to allow quick running up and down the band
- Outer spring-loaded ring is fine tune, becoming more coarse as you turn it further
- Button 1 is IPO (FT-817 preamp)
- Button 5 is ATT (Attenuator)
That's about as far as I've got without really reading the manual - does anybody have a master list of the HRD 'hot' keys I wonder?
