There's been an on-going thread on mycockpit.org about both the scarcity |
and crazy expense of a typical dual-concentric rotary encoder.
I got to thinking about it and made the following suggestion - which I
think folks here could use too.
You could use a regular encoder with a pushbutton in it (like this one:
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9117) to handle both MHz and kHz fields -
turn for MHz, push down & turn for kHz. A simple tweak in software would
handle the job quite easily.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.
