Since upgrading to 1.4 I have not been able to sync my 6500 and CW Skimmer. I have updated both the SDR Bridge and CW Skimmer to the newest versions. The skimmer decodes calls fine, but nothing I have tried.works (Including shaking the 6500's pan adapter.) Has anyone else had this problem"

Thanks to everyone who has commented on this issue. Special thanks to Ed W2RF who exchanged several emails with me to find my particular issue. My problem was the skimmer Telnet panel port was set to 7300 instead of 7310.  

As other individuals  have mentioned the sequence  in which you load the programs is the key.  This is the sequence that has worked for me (several times in a row) :

1. Start Smart SDR
2. Start SDR Bridge (This should bring up CW Skimmer)
3. Click the  "Start Radio" button on CW Skimmer. (If not already engaged)
4. Set the DAX Channel to  Channel 1.

You will need to have the latest version of SDR-Bridge and probably the latest version of CW Skimmer.

Thanks for all your suggestions.  I believe this forum is one of the best reasons for choosing to go with FLEX.
