Got Winkeyer and DM780 working with the Flex emulator using DDutil.  Also, using CW Skimmer in parallel since DM780 cw decoding is marginal at best.  Had to try several SmartCat com ports but eventually found one that worked.  Hats off to Flex Radio.  AA7SN

You're absolutely right, Jerry! DM780 is only useable on machine-generated CW code,
and even then misses a lot of characters. fldigi is better, CWGet is a lot better, but CW
Skimmer tops them all, IMHO.
CW decoding is one of the most difficult problems for a programmer, as there are a lot
of different ways to create CW. Different spacing, length of characters, lenghth of dots
and dashes, machines, bugs, straight keys... I can decode CW up to 20 wpm, but only
for a relatively short time, for monitoring purposes I use CW Skimmer. I need to
practice more ;-)
