I am a CW OP and CW latency is a problem with the 5000. However, I've never had that problem because I use an external keyer to drive the Flex in CW mode. The Flex 5000 is Mar 18, 2010 The audio for this video comes from CW skimmer instead of PowerSDR since I can't run Skimmer and feed audio from PowerSDR at the same time.
There are no cables connecting Skimmer and the Flex 5000 Setting Up Digital Mode Software on the Flex6000 Series Radios Doug Reece AK4AO Version 1. 0 SDRBridge allows RTTY Skimmer and CW Skimmer to work with Flex 6000 2. 3 Planned for the future CWGet machine decoding of CW signals (per section 3. 1 of the WSJTX manual). This is probably more of a CW Skimmer question than a Flex question, but here goes anyway I have my 6300 working with CW Skimmer, using DAXIQ and CAT (as a TS2000).
It seems to work well, but if I click on a callsign in CW Skimmer it" tunes" the radio, but I'm not sure it's working right. Mar 05, 2011 The new FT5000 has better specs than the Flex 5000.
It is the new Gold Standard in the specifications race. It is nice to think that the highest rating in dynamic range in the lab maps to the highest performance in the field. Dec 29, 2012 FlexRadio System, Flex5000A Amazing Hamradio system, looking howto work on SSB and CW with CWSkimmer. Enjoy to SDR! Open Window Device Manger and make sure your IEEE 1394 FireWire Card is working (Flex3000& Flex5000) CW SKIMMER, HRD, MULTIPSK if you want to try digital modes of HF communication CW, RTTY, PSK, etc.

CW Skimmer is a multichannel CW decoder and analyzer by Alex VE3NEA CW Skimmer can be used with the SDR1000 and Flex5000 radios via a virtual audio cable.
Sound card: a stereo sound card that supports the 48 kHz sampling rate or higher and has a valid WDM driver; PowerSDR is setup in CW mode (U is preferred) with VAC enabled.
NOTE: Turn OFF Spur Reduction (SR) to prevent a 3 KHz variation in the CW Skimmer frequency readout. Below is the PowerSDR console in CW mode configured for use with CW Skimmer. Introduction to CW Skimmer By Pete Smith, N4ZR The purpose of this brief guide is to assist the ham operator who is curious about CW Skimmer, but uncertain whether it will be interesting enough to warrant buying a licensed copy.
I should make it clear here that I am simply an enthusiastic user of CW Skimmer. CWSkimmer is a neat little program that decodes multiple cw signals all at the same time. This is my particular information relating to setting up CWSkimmer to work with my SDR These are the settings I am using with my original Flex 3000 and now upgraded to 5000 running on Microsoft Windows 7 on an Apple Mac Mini using the Bootcamp partition.
I will try to keep this document up to date as I make changes. Before CW Skimmer (Flex 3000) Click to enlarge. After CW Skimmer Configuration (Flex 5000)
