How to change freq on Laptop without wheel mouse

Postby W9KJO » Sat Apr 22, 2017 11:03 pm

I have the new version of SDR UNO on my laptop and my laptop does not have a wheel mouse, just the little pad at the bottom of the keyboard.

How do I scroll freq digits on a laptop?

I usually use SDR UNO on my desktop but want to show the SDR UNO to some potential hams at a meeting in a couple weeks so I loaded it up on my laptop. Help me get this strait in my mind on the laptop please.

Thanks W9KJO

If you click at the top of a digit, it will increase, and click on the bottom of the digit, it will decrease.

Is there a setting for this function because when I click on the top or bottom of any digit a freq enter window opens.

Some time one just needs to nudge up or down a few digits and that is possible with a wheel mouse but not so easy on a laptop

The Manual says that the up/down arrows are suppose to change freq in VRX by the step size.

How do I turn this on? It is not working on my PC.

I think that is changed by hitting the space bar. I made an error by saying you could click on the number to move it. That's in another SDR program. the arrows work on my HP laptop. In addition to the manual for SDRUno, there is also the Cookbook under the Community part of Downloads, that is very helpful.

Interesting that the up/down arrows work on your laptop but not on mine. That is very curious. I have a Toshiba Sattelite.

For now I just switched from SDR Uno the HDSDR. It too bad too because SDR Uno is a good software. Just not setup well for laptops. Laptops are fast replacing desktop PCs.

As, I said, everything is working fine on my laptop. I like SDRUno. I had a learning curve, but it wasn't that long. Mostly, I discovered that the software can do a lot more than I could discover in one sitting. There is more access to the gain controls and individual filters in SDRUno than in the other software, but some of that is in menus or windows that aren't immediately visible. Once you have discovered them, and then learned how they function, you can really tune it to do exactly what you want.
