7.1 piWebCAT - Database table - lookup
The lookup table is used for the numeric value presentation from a slider when there is
a non linear relationship between the CAT value and the displayed value.
Example from Yaesu FTdx101D CAT manual:
The Fdx101D has different values for SSB and the other modes.
If slider.lookup = Y, then the lookup table entries must have mode = Y.
If slider.lookup = M, then the lookup table entries have mode = current operating mode
which is the caption on the mode button.
For IF width, slider table lookup = M.
I have separate identical LSB and USB sections in the table (not SSB) in order to match button captions, LSB and USB.
The slider has single max and min settings.
These are set to 1 and 21. Lookup entries for CW, RTTY, PSK are extended with 19, 20 21 set to 3000Hz.
The above shows a section of lookup table in piWebCAT's editor.
I have in total:
IFWD LSB 21 entries CAT values 1 to 21
IFWD USB 21 entries CAT values 1 to 21
IFWD CW 21 entries CAT values 1 to 21 CAT value 19 to 21 added in as 3000Hz
IFWD RTTY 21 entries CAT values 1 to 21 CAT value 19 to 21 added in as 3000Hz
IFWD PSK 21 entries CAT values 1 to 21 CAT value 19 to 21 added in as 3000Hz
Any other mode uses the LSB calibration
Setting mode = X makes the entries applicable to any mode.
