I am looking for a reliable way to connect CW Skimmer to DAX I/Q

I have been using CW Skimmer with SSDR / Flex 6700 on and off for a while. However, mostly 'off' as the connection is flaky at best. Sometimes I can't get it going at all, other times it works fine. I don't know why.

I downloaded SDR-Bridge but it seems to be made for Skimmer Service not plain vanilla CW Skimmer. Nice looking program, thought.

Here's my set-up:

Latest versions of SSDR, SSDR CAT, DDUtil, and CW Skimmer.

i7 PC with Win 7 64 bit and 8 GB RAM.

here is my set up, note that CWS is not getting the right SSDR frequency (yes, I have changed frequency in Slice A to 'wake up' programs connected to it) via DDUtil and DAX I/Q 1

I will try starting CW Skimmer after DDUtil. Thanks for the tip. Right now DDUtil is set up to launch CWS on my system

Bill,  SDR Bridge seems to work the best here for just plaibn Skimmer to Flex interface.  It will also work with the Skimmer Aggregator to send spots to the RBN but its not necessary to use it for that purpose.

Larry -- how do you connect SDR Bridge to CW Skimmer? I can't find any instructions for this.

Tnx

This combination works like a charm for me.  Before SDR-Bridge, I spent many frustrating hours.
