Oakley VCO switched octave course range ?

Has the Oakley VCO ever had a modification whereby the course range control pot has been substituted with a resistor chain rotary switch instead ?
(Such as on the Moog 901a) where each turn raises or lowers an octave.

If anyone has done it would they explain how it's done (if it is possible) ?

If I've cut and pasted right..here is q&a on same topic from 2013.

I have modified one of my Oakley VCOs with an octave switch. I just feeded the + and - side to a row of trimmers, one for each octave.

Thank you for these replies.

This will make life easier as I do frequent octave switching. The trimmer is a good solution.

I deduced that there are about 5-6 octaves controlled by the Course Tune pot.
But in the low frequency end its difficult to hear octaves.

I guess a rotary switch ...resistors and trial and much error.
