Re: Feature request: CW-Skimmer
- Hey Alex,
it took me some time, but today I wrote a detailed post why it would
be handy to select VFO-A OR VFO-B as a frequency source in CW-Skimmer.
Mainly it's a problem for all contesters which are using, Skimmer,
Win-Test and having an SDR in the second receiver. I also tried to
explain in this post why IMO it does not help to change the .ini file
of Omni-Rig. I would be grateful if you could have a look over it. It
does not require more than 5 minutes reading it.
Thanks & best regards,
