    I am using a panadapter for keeping an eye on the CW bands. While a waterfall display is good, i would probably benefit more from a CW Skimmer to know who is where on the bands. BTW, i don't want to rely on a cluster. I'm a small station and i tend to search for my contacts among those that are not mentioned in a cluster yet. No pile-up mess.
    So does anyone know of a CW Skimmer like software for the Mac?

    Hi, I just read your postn that seems to have received no reply.
    If you still searching, you may wish to consider a solution to run Windows® apps on MacOS :

    They say you don't need to buy a Windows® licence.
    Besides you may also run N1MM, etc.

    I'm trying to move away from Windows in the hamshack, and it's disappointing when the only solutions to a need presented here involve running Windows or some imitation of it on your Mac to get the job done. I agree, at this point I haven't found any skimmer software for Mac and that's too bad, but I did find another alternative.

    You can try going to the RBN website with your browser and using the display there for your skimmer information.

    Hope this helps.
