wider bandwidth with CW Skimmer

Is there any way to get a wider bandwidth using CW Skimmer? It seems that the signal path is wide enough, but I only get about 6 KHz displayed.

Running Win 7/64, latest version of SSDR and CW Skimmer. I bring the program up with SliceMaster, which works fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to turn on your DAX IQ stream.

    The DAXIQ is the limiting factor it can only span so far

    The DAX Control Panel will let you set the bandwidth for your DAXIQ channels.  You can select 24khz to 192khz. 

     I find that 96khz is a good trade off between network bandwidth and skimmer "range".  Pick which you like and Slice Master will make the corresponding changes when it starts CW Skimmer for you.

    Of the 96khz being sent to the DAXIQ channel, CW Skimmer decode from the about the middle 80% of it.  On my "standard-ish" 1080 line screen, I can see about 8khz of that at any one time.  CW Skimmer doesnt allow any form of zooming.  If you have a 4k monitor or stack a couple of monitors on top of each other, you'll see a lot more.
