SDRC with Skimmer doesn't work #sdrconsolev3 #cw


Kurt, DF4XX
 

Hello folks,
 
Have installed the SDR Console V3 V3.0.10-64bit and configured with IF driven SDRPlay RSP2Pro (IF from K3S) and OmniRig. everything works properly.
CW Skimmer 2.1 and VB Cable (1.3.05).

With HDSDR / VB cable / CW Skimmer running all fine.

When I Enablethe  skimmer in the console as described here,

https://www.sdr-radio.com/Software/3rd-Party/CWSkimmer

no I / Q data will be routed to the skimmer.
 
The following messages appear in the log of SDRC.

Same problem with VAC ..
 
does anyone have a helpful solution?

OK,

 

Just did a clean install of everything – works OK. I am now updating the documentation to avoid any confusion. Will be ready this evening, I’m out this afternoon.

Hah,

 

There’s something very, very wrong in my Skimmer support code. Working on it…

I tested some time ago and had the same problem.

Simon,

thanks for feedback..  I doubted myself ...

fine, waitung for Update in the next version.

73, Kurt


Kurt, DF4XX
 

Simon,

just installed V3.0.11 and the CW Skimmer works as usual.. Great Support Thanks !

one Question : Why the Frequency Offset of -12295 ? 

Have adjusted in CW Skimmer -> Radio -> Audio IF, Hz to 12295..  works fine now.

Hi Simon

the frequency Offset 12295 is the Span Value.. if I change the Span Zoom, so I have to enter the new value in the CW Skimmer Settings
under Audio IF ..  see Screenshot below

Hi,

 

Please *attach* the screenshots – I can’t read the details. Sorry, but I want to be sure what I’m seeing.

Hi Simon,

requested Files attached. 

In fact, if I change the span (zoom), I have to enter the new span value in the AUDIO IF for the CW Skimmer Settings. Otherwise it will not fit anymore.
Maximum Span is about 20k.
 
Hope it helps with the search?
 
73, Kurt


Simon Brown
 

Excellent,

 

Will look at this now although it’s getting a tad warm. Like fine wines I am best when kept cool.

Of course, finding a band with any CW signals for testing isn’t easy! I’ve never experienced such bad conditions as the summer of 2019.

Hi,

 

I think it’s now much better. I’ll invite you to the test team where I will publish a kit in a few minutes.
