[Skimmertalk] How to handle A/D Clipping?

Hello Skimmertalk people:
On Friday K1TTT used a Straight Key to say:
> I assume you are taking an IF output from the k3 to drive the sdr-iq...
> If you unplug the sdr-iq from the radio
> does the clipping go away?
so far, after 5 minutes without antenna to SDR-IQ, CW-Skimmer (1.8) still
shows Status 4 A/D .
> Does it work if you just plug an antenna into
> the sdr-iq?
works fine. Ran the antenna straight in from outside. Went about ten
mins and no A/D problem status.
Trouble is now, after ten mins back on with the K3 set up, the A/D has
not burped yet.
I use Commander and Skimmer->Commander also. S2C is set to not track VFO
though this morning I had it as such.
Just now I changed bands via Commander, on the K3. Instantly the A/D
light went red. If I used the far-left "Start/Stop Radio" button on
Skimmer, on restart the Status=4 was off.
Each time I change bands then the A/D light comes on and I don't think
quits for that session.
So, we're making some progress to figuring it out.
thanks for the help.
