1931Re: [dxatlas] Re: Editing Skimmer WAV Files?
- May 1, 2010Hi Jeff,
The center frequency, UTC date/time and other parameters of the recording
are stored in the WAV headers. If you save a fragment of a recording in a
new file, you can add the missing headers manually using the WavInfo tool
available at (www.dxatlas.com/cwskimmer/files/wavinfo.zip). You can run two
instances of this tool, open the original file in the first instance and the
new file in the second instance, and copy-and-paste the headers.
I believe many general purpose wav editors also have commands for editing
the info headers.

Editing the CW Skimmer WAV files does not seem to work with an audio editing
tool. I sliced off all but the first 10 minutes of the file, and played it
back using CW Skimmer. It decodes the callsigns, but the absolute frequency
information is lost. It plots against an offset rather than the absolute
The unedited original ~1 hour file decodes as expected.
Any guidance how I can slice off a ten minute period of a large captured WC
Skimmer WAV file without losing any information?
