I am trying to get CW Skimmer working with PwrSDR v2.6.4. I can get CW Skimmer working with a display bandwidth of approximately 3 khz. How do I get CW Skimmer to display more than 3 Khz bandwidth?? Thanks, Larry W4WIV

There is an article in the Knowledge Center that address how to configure PowerSDR for wide band operation. It is CWSkimmer Configuration using VAC Direct I/Q

The article is a little dated, but the info is still applicable.

One note. The CWSkimmer Audio IF (Hz) value is based on the radio's DDS IF. For the FLEX-5000 and FLEX-3000, that is 9000 Hz so the example in the KC article is correct. If you have a FLEX-1500, the DDS IF is 3800 kHz for PowerSDR v2.6.4. So the CWSkimmer Audio IF value would be 4400 (3800 + 600)
