1187Re: [dxatlas] CW Skimmer / SDR-IQ "stopping" abnormally
- Nov 13, 2008I'm running the "highly recommended" version of the ActiveX from W2RF
from this link: http://www.dxatlas.com/CwSkimmer/SDRIQX.asp
It says it's version 126.96.36.199, sdrIQx.dll. It's been regsrv32'd
properly and I haven't seen any "errors" from it.
CW Skimmer itself is version 1.3 downloaded two days ago.
Hardware is XP Pro (32-bit) service pack 2-ish, two AMD Opteron 1.6GHz
chips and less than 500MB of 1GB RAM used.
