I can't find anything on the HDSDR web site related to CW Skimmer or
All I could find was this link:
But at best, that may only work on a single band (which is all that CW
Skimmer can support). See http://www.dxatlas.com/CWSkimmer . This is
probably the only program that will work with the SDRPlay.
Skimmer Server is a different program by the same author. It can scan
multiple bands at once, but only works with a limited set of SDRs, and they
are listed at http://www.dxatlas.com/SkimServer/. The QS1R is still the
only one with sufficient FPGA to scan up to 7 bands at once.
The same author has yet another program, RTTY Skimmer Server. See
I think a Flex6700 can use CW Skimmer on multiple receivers, giving you 4
bands at once (but it's not using Skimmer Server).
