While you are testing configurations, there is another way to sync Skimmer
with your radio that you might want to try. It's a free program called
RigSync that is available at
I'm planning a new version and would appreciate your comments and feedback.

Well, I know I am preaching to the choir here but after months of being too
cheap to actually buy a copy of CW Skimmer, I finally gave CW Skimmer to
myself as a Christmas present . Armed with a plethora of applications, my
station is a lean , mean , CW machine.
I feed CW Skimmer with an SDR-IQ. The SDR-IQ is in tandem with a
TS-2000 and Elad Switcbox that enables sharing of the antenna and SDR front
end protection when transmitting. CW Skimmer feeds Spotcollector and the
TS-2000 is kept in sync via Commander and W3OA's Skimmer to Commander
application. Winwarbler provides the macros for rapid exchanges with DX and
my Microkeyer and Bencher
paddles are in-line when I send manually. Most of the time I am just
reacting to my own skims but occasionally allow Spotcollector to access
other skims when looking for what others may be hearing. Its a "busy"
scenario with all these apps at once, but so far it is fun.
Tomorrow, setting up two monitors!
