SDC Skimmer for Flex Radios

    It can run on any Slice or Slice(s) that are available. Per the instructions, configure DAX1, DAX 2, etc and then set up Skimmer 1, Skimmer 2 etc with matching configuration in SDR-Bridge. As soon as your selected Slice or Slices start so will the associated Skimmer(s).

    It can be on any slice. Just have to make sure the IQ stream setting in the slice and in SDRBridge match up.

    Hi Erik,

    I just discovered this thread and would very much like to try SDC Skimmer out. The PDF you created says it is now deleted from dropbox. Can you kindly re-upload it for us?

    Thanks a lot. W9PDS

    Hello Patrick. Yes I will. It was deleted because the SDC author objected to SDC for Flex being used without any donation being made and ceased issuing reg codes that are necessary for the software to work with our radios.

    However, things have changed. Reg codes will be issued after a donation is made. This can be of any amount, preferably $10 but he says "any amount" - though I would be sensible and not send him $1! SDC Skimmer has been updated for better results with Flex radios. Also, in response to requests, running text has now been added to the Skimmer similar to CW Skimmer.

    I will amend the instruction document as soon as I have the time and upload it again. I will post here when it is ready.

    I just registered. In Setup Skimmer 1, under Control type, the dropdown only includes Audio +TCI and TCI only, it does not show Audio + telnet, thank you for your support.

    These are the selections available. Check that you have moved down the list to see below the two you mention.
