Hello.
I have just set up and started using my Flex 1500 with WSPR 2.12 and after a struggle got them working together.
So now I am trying to set up CWSkimmer with the Flex 1500.
Is there any way that skimmer (or any of the other WSJT programs) and the 1500 can work together without having to go into the PowerSDR Menu Setup to change the settings on Audio VAC1 and CAT Control ?.

PowerSDR v2.7.2
CWSkimmer 1.8
Virtual Audio Cable 4.13

Thanks for looking.

No.  CWSkimmer uses direct IQ where WSJT uses recovered audio, so your VAC settings will be different.

Unless you use the IQ version of WSJT  (MAP65) .  That may do want you want.
