[Skimmertalk] Harmonics on SignaLink USB?

It appears that you are monitoring the audio output from the speaker or
headphone jack.  Have you tried connecting headphones directly to the AUX
connector on the back of the SignaLink to hear what is being received?

Try reducing the RF GAIN or AF GAIN on the FT-897.  It's likely these
overtones are generated in the HF receiver itself, especially when using
the recommended "Wide" SSB filter.  You might also try a narrow filter if
you're just trying to use CW Skimmer as code reader.
