227Blinking LED code patch

      A few StationPro II builders have told me they find the blinking green LED (which indicates that a selected amplifier is bypassed) to be distracting. It is very easy to disable the blinking feature by adding a small patch to the firmware. To do this, scroll through the firmware listing on the Basic Stamp editor until you find a short subroutine called “blinkled:” This subroutine has only five lines of code in it. Add an apostrophe at the beginning of lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 and you’re done. Here is what the modified code should look like:



      ‘     PAUSE 90                            

      ‘     IF IN10=0 AND remflag=0 THEN Offline

      ‘     HIGH amp                            

      ‘     PAUSE 50                            

            GOTO rd_buttons


      If you didn’t save your transceiver and amplifier selections when you loaded the original firmware into your SP-II, you’ll have enter the selections again.  Now, when you bypass an amplifier, the green LED will not blink but will stay lighted. The LCD will continue to display “AMP  BYPASS”, as before, so you’ll know you’re in the bypass mode.
