Default Altair 680 Front Panel Programming?

I have been looking through the manuals for the Altair 680, and have seen

very little on programming through the front panel.

In octal this is easy , you just memorize the binary equivalents for 0 - 7,

but how do accomplish this in hexadecimal?

Not exactly sure what you mean, but I'll attempt to help. Each segment of four swtiches represents one hexidecimal number. So, to program a hex "A" the switches would be set at 1010 So you are using hexidecimal numbers, but must use the binary equivalent to enter the data in using the switches.
