I just received my new E-Coder Plus and am amazed at how good this unit is.
You can assign any button to almost any function in Expert SDR. The three rotary encoders along the top are great I have my RF Gain, Drive level & Squelch assigned to them. Everything lights up so you can see in the dark. The main rotary VFO encoder feels smooth as butter.

If you prefer the feel of a VFO knob over the PC mouse and like to have a few extra controls at your fingertips I highly recommend the E-Coder.

Get one before they run out of stock! :yes:

It doesn't look that cool, but it is very functional. I love mine as well! :so_happy:

Yes very nice, Makes the FlexControl I used to have look like a toy ;)
The only thing that looks out of place is the blue color knobs. I think nice billet aluminum knobs would look perfect to me.

I also have the ecoder plus. Just received my new 2dx with it. It ok but I would be happy with just a knob I could use just for the VFO. The light on the vfo part is distracting bright, dimmer adj. would be nice.

Here is the new knobs I used for the top 3 encoders.
I think it's a better look and has a better feel as well.

I have one and never used it. Can you explain how to setup the coder and how you made the three controllers like you have for your RF Gain, Drive level & Squelch assigned to them

I know that in ESDR2 you can turn on and off the led lights for the VFO and buttons interdependently from the control panel menu. I'm not sure if it's the same in ESDR v3 as I am still running V2 on my MB1.
A dimming feature would be extra nice ;)

Here is the final version of e-coder mini. Evidently the pushbutton spacing is not an exemplar of precise CNC laser machining as I did it all manually.
The tuning knob - you guessed it - is from Elecraft K3s and it very smooth. I also have e-coder 2 for remote ops but waiting for EESDR3 update

did anyone try the regular ecoder and the plus variant side by side? Is the "plus" worth the upgrade?

E-Coder Plus is a minor upgrade and E-Coder2 is a huge leap.
