    Thank you, Chris!

    As for N1MM+ integration, although CAT-free, SDR-Bridge is CAT compatible. That means if you use N1MM+ via a CAT connection on slices A/B, Bridge is aware of that connection.

    For full compatibility, in SmartSDR open slices A and B, and in Bridge assign Slice A to IQ 1. Then on the Bridge Radio tab, enable "Split Follows TX Slice".

    Then when you go into split in N1MM+ (or any CAT supported logger), Bridge will notice that and also go into split mode.

    If you are using the K6TU iPad app, you can also control split operations from there.

    Thanks again, and let me know of questions or problems.

    I have been using SDR-Bridge v.1.1.3 with CWskimmer for some time. I notice that on 17 meter cw the CWskimmer frequency will not go below 18084.5khz. The skimmer waterfall stops at 91.5. Is this a problem with SDR-Bridge,  SmartCat, or some oversight on my part??

    OK Al, thanks for the comments. All versions are correct, all settings are correct. But what I discovered was that the stream low value shown in the SDR-Bridge main window was stuck on 18082.5. Changing bands and coming back to 17meters did not change this value. I got to playing around, and found out by expanding then contracting the panadaptor range unstuck that value, and now all is well. Never thought to do that. I've been living with this for the past couple weeks.

    Usually odd Skimmer waterfall behavior is due to the assigned slice not being in the proper range. Also occasionally the panadapter needs "shaking" in order to sync up. That would be equivalent to your expand/contract action.

    Let me know of further problems. And Al, thanks for your help!
