Only about a bazillion of us.  You need to use SDR-Bridge http://www.qrv.com/sdrbridge.html to manage the two degrees of tuning freedom for each panadapter (the panadapter tuning and the slice tuning)

Works just great for me Ross. The only issue  I have is most of the time I have to use the DAX control panel and select DAX -1/IQ  (in my case) for 96K each time I bring up SSDR, it defaults to 48K.
I think FRS is working on the  persistence problem with DAX and its no big deal here to reset it.
DDUTIL will also work with CW skimmer.  Lots of fun with SSDR CWX and CW skimmer, a great pair.
A good deal for a cw challenged ol fella.
SDR-Bridge has some good tips in its doc/help file also, a must read.

I usually use CW Skimmer with 48k, which is more than enough
bandwidth for the CW bands.
