VAC I/Q output for CW Skimmer

I hope that I/Q output via VAC is planned. External programs like CW Skimmer could take advantage. SmartSDR should output a great enough bandwidth for other programs to utilize. For instance, I know Skimmer Server can process multiple bands at one time, currently from 2 specific receivers. Details would have to be worked out for drivers for SmartSDR.

    This is already in the plan for some time in the future, but the "How" to best do this is very daunting due to the multiple slices that can be created. But thanks for the reminder.

    And... We are not planning on using the third-party VAC program either. It will be a FlexRadio Systems sound device "emulator". The plans are for it to stream data from the radio as either real or complex (IQ) data (audio). It will also probably be implemented like SmartSDR CAT where it is a standalone client communicating with the radio independently of SmartSDR for Windows. DISCLAIMER: These are the initial plans and they may change.
