RE: [dxatlas] CWSkimmer Server 1.2 not Decoding Callsign W4QO
I agree. They're there now but I promise they weren't there when I made the
initial post. Hummmm..
Not sure why my CWSkimmer server is not decoding him. I am decoding 196 KHz
starting at 18.068 and he was transmitting on 18.091 MHz. Jim and I have
tried other bands as well 80M and 40M in the evening when local HF is very

Hi Mack - I'm confused. I search the RBN database and I see a lot of
W4QO spots from people who I think are using Skimmer Server, like
LA5EKA, DK9IP, and DL2CC, as well as K1TTT, who I *know* is.

on multiple bands and his signal strength at my QTH is S9.
