SD lets you record additional data sent by non-UK stations,
as required by the HFCC General Rules for HF contests.
However, there's no point in doing so because any such
data is not cross-checked.

NOTE:  The rules for this contest specify a bonus of 5
points for each new "country", but do not indicate the
DXCC list or the RSGB list - with country credit for
call-areas in various countries such as W and VE.  The
only reference to countries in the General Rules is in
the context of multipliers.  In the 1.8 MHz contest,
bonuses are an alternative to multipliers and I have
assumed that the RSGB country list applies. Please let
me know if this is not correct.


        DX (non-UK) entrants. 

Note:  SD is fully operational in this contest for DX
entrants.  You don't need to be registered to use it.
