Has anyone been able to connect SmartSDR for iOS to CW Skimmer? It's not working here with either Skimmer Desktop or Skimmer Server. I tested with the following steps:
  • Start CW Skimmer Desktop or Server with telnet enabled.
  • Using a telnet app on the iOS device connect to the Skimmer. This works properly. Skimmer Desktop shows an active connection in the status bar.
  • Using SSDR for iOS DX Cluster feature set up a connection to the Skimmer and start it. This shows Receiving... but there is no data, and Skimmer Desktop does NOT show a connection in the status bar.
Is this a bug, or am I missing a trick?

Hi Ed, thanks for reporting this. That's indeed a bug. The CW Skimmer telnet server behaves a bit different (non standard) but I have this fixed already here in my developer version. I am expecting to roll this out next week along with some other fixes reported here.

Thanks again,
