CW Skimmer :

CW Skimmer is perhaps the most unusual Morse decoder, designed for contesting by Alex shovkoplyas, VE3NEA, this window's application continuously scans the audio output of your receiver and displays the visual signature and call sign of every CW signal it can "hear". As it decodes call signs, CW Skimmer lists them in a kind of "band-map" along the right-hand side of the waterfall display next to the signal traces. The decoded text appears along the bottom of the window.

To use CW Skimmer you'll need a PC running windows 98 or XP with a sound card connected to the audio output of your transceiver. CW skimmer also requires a radio with a computer control (CAT) interface. Fortunately, most modern transceivers include this feature.

You'll find the CW Skimmer page on the web at
