CW Skimmer Setup with Slice Master

Good Evening,

I have Slice Master installed and also the IQ Stream for Slice A in DAX. When I bring up CW Skimmer, but it will not show the frequency that is on my 6400M. I have been looking for something written that would tell me the settings within CW Skimmer for it to communicate with my 6400M. Also, what settings are necessary for Slice Master. I also know that I could use SDR Bridge. Can anyone offer any advice on where I can find a document that will help me to set this up?

    I just activated SDR Bridge, and now CW Skimmer gives me the frequency that is on the radio. Plus the spots are showing up on the screen of my 6400M. Why is this working in SDR Bridge, but Slice Master doesn't for some reason?

  • Are you maybe bringing up CW Skimmer manually? In Slice Master, set it to launch Skimmer on mode. When you put the radio in CW, SM will launch Skimmer with the correct settings including frequency. When you leave CW, SM will close the instance(s) of Skimmer.

    I was told the Slice Master would be the better choice. Once I bring up Slice Master CW Skimmer automatically uses the right settings. And I did set it to start on mode. Thanks for the advice. I had great results with my 6400M with the ARRL DX CW Contest this past weekend.
