CWSkimmer has to be set for 3K mode since the DAX audio is "real" and not complex (IQ). I can only receive at this juncture.

Signal i/o is a DAX Audio RX [channel number]
audio i/o is a DAX Audio TRX [channel number]

The channel number are the same.

Got it working thanks Timmy.
I guess it will work for now...except for some monster pileup with a big split. LOL

Not working the contest, too much to learn, and even more to RELEARN.

One of the benefits to advancing senility...I learn something anew...each day!

Guess I'll wait for IQ before trying CW Skimmer again as 3K is not really wide enough for the big pile ups. IQ is due in V1.1 in January so not too far away.

Then wait to see if FRS will implement the holy grail combining the panadapter, waterfall, and Skimmer in one display.
