Skimmer tunes in 100 Hz steps

FLEX 6500 with SSDR and SDR Bridge to CW Skimmer.  Everything perfect except that the tuning steps on CW Skimmer are stuck at 100 Hz which is a bit coarser than I would like. Tuning steps in SSDR are fine.  As I tune around with my FlexControl SSDR tunes smoothly but CW Skimmer 'jumps' in 100 Hz steps.   Have looked at all SSDR, SDR Bridge and CW Skimmer settings with no luck so far.  Any suggestions?

    Hi Barry,
    That is a known issue in CW Skimmer.  CWS synchs up every 100 HZ.  A workaround (shaking the panadapter) is on page 18 of my "quickstart" notes on the SDR-Bridge web page.   You can also click tune the particular call in the skimmer waterfall to synch it up with SSDR. 

    Alex (author of CWS) is aware of the issue and should address it eventually.  (no timeframe though)

    Thanks Al.  I've picked up a copy of your notes on SDR-Bridge now.
