Flex 6300 I/Q bandwidth

Hi all,

I've purchased a used 6300 for use in feeding a spotting network we are creating.  I also hope to use this small radio for road trips and future field day, etc.

I have a question about the I/Q bandwidth and how it relates to CW Skimmer.  

I am using SliceMaster to integrate the radio and skimmer.   I have my DAX IQ channels set to 96khz sampling.

This may simply be a cw skimmer scrolling issue or some other issue but if I for example open a pan and put my slice at 14.020.  If I enable DAX I/Q, make sure slice master is running and let the skimmer come up I find when I scroll up and down in the skimmer that I cover the range of roughly:

~14.012.5  to  14.027.5 or about 15Kc

The specs for the 6300 say:

·         DAX IQ Channels/Bandwidth per Channel (DAXIQ): 2 @ 24 kHz - 96 kHz

So I was expecting to get closer to 24 kc.

Is this just a skimmer issue?  Is the radio really putting out the full 24 kc to skimmer?

I did the same test on my Flex 6600 and found my skimmer scrolling to cover about 24 kc

Is this what I should expect from both radios?
