Recently I got up to speed with MixW for some PSK31 work. It works great.
I also tried out CWSkimmer with similar results.
I noticed there was an advantage of allowing each application access to read and control the radio so the frequency information correlates.
No problem I thought. However, I began thinking about the upcoming Virginia QSO Party where I will also be using a logging program from N3FJP or N1MM.
