I listened mostly during the ARRL NAQP CW contest over the weekend using my QS1R SDR and new 160m inverted L, 7 100ft radials. Below are some random band recordings using the QS1R SDRMAX software:

K0EJ CW Skimmer video less audio, ‘technical malfunction on my part’. The audio quality of CW Skimmer is not that of SDRMAX but none the less pretty cool stuff! CW Skimmer doesn’t interface directly with N1MM other than telnet spot reporting. Serial port sharing is a hassle.

Here’s a screenshot of CW Skimmer showing band activity on 160M:
