      Pete,

      One thing that would be nice is if it could be possible to set CW Skimmer to the Transmit VFO. When trying to bust apileup, I do not want my receive VFO to change frequency when I click on the last call sign that sent 599. In other words if I want to search and pounce on the freq that the DX is listening to, the radio needs to change to that freq when I click on that call sign.

      I RCV on VFO B and transmit on A but B changes according to where I click. If I reverse VFOs then the current RCV VFO changes. Can't find a work-around.

      Best Regards
      Dan Schaaf

      Dan, which version did you download? It should be version 1.2 - which has
      the callsign validation code and the calls tab. If you got 1.1 by mistake,
      your registration code is good for 1.2 also, I believe. Sampling rates are
      greyed out in 3-KHz mode because all the sound card is dealing with is a
      3-KHz-wide sample of transceiver audio.

      It goes down to roughly 4 dB SNR with good copy. Also, one of its beauties
      is that it outlasts QSB, and once it "knows" who it is, it posts it, even
      if that takes up to 10 minutes.

      I don't know anything about AALog. If you can receive packet spots from a
      telnet cluster, then it should work, though DX4WIN doesn't put Skimmer
      spots in the spots window, just displays them in the packet window
      itself. It's the result of some inflexibility in the spot pattern
      recognition code. I understand they plan to fix that in a coming version.

      So tell me more about AALog.
