CW Skimmer no longer tracking frequency after update to 1.6.21, Does not change frequency display if radio changes band or or frequency in a band?? 

see signals in window but frequency stays the same even if I change bands. Can not click on a signal and have radio frequency change. Appears to not being talking between 6300 and CW Skimmer anymore.

Any help would be great!!!...Ed

    Hi Ed,
    Are you using SDR-Bridge?  

    Frequency display and tracking problems are often incorrect Telnet settings. 

    Some more notes about SDR-Bridge and CWS setup here:

    Resolved by after many tries to get it working I used the slash and burn method. Deleted SDR-Bridge and CW Skimmer then reinstalled with new copies. Now up and running. Hopefully will not come back...Thank You...Ed

    I noticed a few oddities but was able to get them fixed when it happened by grabbing the pan adapter with the mouse and shaking it back and forth for a short second and all come back in line. Most notably what I was noticing was the pan adapter and the water fall didn't line up. Running latest flex update, sdr bridge and skimmer. Didn't think much of it but when I saw this thought it was worth mentioning. Mike N9DFD

    My workflow for CW Skimmer:

    1. Start one of my WinKeyer profiles, which has DAX I/Q set at 96k
    2. Start my ZLP electronics CW Keyer
    3. Start HRD Digital Master CW-WinKeyer
    4. Start SDRBridge with CW Skimmer set at 96k
    5. Tune once to a preset frequency from CW Skimmer

    Signal is spot on, you can cklick-tune frome all three programs now
