CW Skimmer is an advanced multi-channel CW decoding application that allows you to monitor and decode Morse code transmissions on multiple channels simultaneously. It is used by amateur radio operators, shortwave listeners, and professional radio operators for a variety of tasks such as DXing, contesting, and emergency communication.

CW Skimmer provides real-time decoding and display of multiple CW signals on a single panoramic band scope.

• Multi-channel monitoring: CW Skimmer allows you to monitor multiple channels at once, with each channel having its own independent settings.

• Real-time decoding: The software can decode Morse code transmissions in real-time, and provides a detailed display of decoded messages.

• Bandwidth filtering: CW Skimmer has a built-in bandpass filter that allows you to adjust the frequency range of the signal you're monitoring.

• Automated CW identification: The software can automatically detect and identify CW signals and display their frequency, call sign, and other useful information.

• Call sign database: CW Skimmer can be linked to an online database of call signs, allowing you to quickly identify signals and add them to a list of monitored stations.

• Automatic logging: The software can log decoded transmissions automatically and store them on your computer or in an online logbook.

• Audio recording: CW Skimmer can record audio from the received signals and save it as a standard WAV file.

• Keyboard control: You can control the operation of the software using your keyboard, allowing you to quickly adjust settings and monitor multiple channels.

• Flexible signal processing: The software allows you to adjust the signal processing settings to suit your individual requirements.

• DX spotting: CW Skimmer can spot DX stations and alert you when they are heard on a monitored frequency, allowing you to quickly tune in and make contacts.

• Extensive analysis tools: The software includes a variety of tools and features for analyzing CW signals, such as signal strength meters, bandpass filters, and more.

• Customizable user interface: The user interface can be customized to suit your individual needs, with the ability to add custom columns and tabs.

• And much more!
