FT817 external display - preview video

As announced two days ago, the external display for FT817 lives! Here is a preview video of what it does at the present time.

The microcontroller board is exactly the one of my FT817 keypad. I only needed to add a connector to source +5V and GND to power the display.

Depending on firmware size, some single-function buttons could be added around the display, such as VFO A/B, split, mode roll.

Comments welcome.

Very nice! Much easier on the old eyes with the larger display.
