    Dave provided a link to a Wiki a few days ago maybe a week ago. Look back through Flex Community posts over the past couple weeks. Basically under Commanders config Bandspread tab, select "display spots"

    Try entering "How to show spots in the panadapter?" into the Search box above the thread listing in the Community.

    Dave AA6YQ posted links about how to do it using DXLabs Commander and Spotcollector, in several threads recently

    Slicemaster is another programs that can show them.

    Download Slice Master and put it in a folder and create a desktop shortcut to it

    In Smart SDR under Settings select Spots and then Enable to enable spots

    Start Smart SDR

    Start Slice Master

    In the following tab Select dxlab as the spot source and check Enable aggregation server
    Make sure Show internal spots in not checked

    Then in the following tab sekect the slice(s) you want the spots to appear and set Launch to When Active. This will launch CW Skimmer whenever that slice is active.

    Then launch Spot Collector

    In Spot Collector click on Config then the Spot Database tab. Under Web Server check Enable and set the port to 80

    In a few minutes you should see spots ont he panadapter in Smart SDR. You can filter for certain spots in Spot Collector and the filter will be applied to the spots before they are sent to Smart SDR.

    Note: If you change the filter older spots will remain in Smart SDR for the lapse time specified in Slice Master. I usually just clear them out via Smart SDR Settings >Spots - Clear Spots

    Hope this helps

    Forgot one other thing

    In Spot Collector you need to specify that it uses as the spot source the Slice Master.

    You do this in the Spot Sources tab. Add an entry for port 7300 which is what Slice Master uses for the spots.
