WebSwitch 1216H Rotator Scale picture Ham IV
« on: 2018-10-13, 19:53:19 »
I am successfully using WebSwitch 1216H and RCU 1216L to control my Ham IV rotator.  I especially like the PRESETS ...very convenient!     

Question:   Is it possible to have Ham IV scale pictures implemented in the WebSwitch web page to replace the circular scale that is currently available?

Frank,

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but you can use any image that you want for the
rotator. Just place the image somewhere where the WebSwitch can see it and change the URL at the
top of the Rotator Settings menu "Rotator Image URL".

Hi Frank,

I don't understand your question, but the graphic can be available anywhere on or offsite, as long
as it is reachable over the internet if offsite.

I was just trying to clarify my understanding.  What I meant was this:  I would need to create a new file of pictures for every five degrees of rotation.  I would need to create these pictures using a graphics program or actually take a picture of the rotator scale.  Either way the pictures must be the same size as  the pictures in the existing file.  Each picture there is 150x150.

With that limitation a scale that is a semi circle or an arc is no good because it would be very small compared to the existing 150x150 picrures.

I'll forget about it and use the default file.

Thanks

That would not work, since you can only link to one, single graphic file.
