If you want SD to track multipliers in this contest,
your're limited to recording a maximum of 4 characters
for the DOK.

Multipliers are the first character in the DOK - giving
a maximum of 26, representing the letters A - Z.

Here's the corresponding setup for SD.

Select Type 4 - General, Area Multipliers.
Multipliers Count      : B (by band)
Points CW QSOs         : 3
Points SSB QSOs        : 3
Pts/Bonus              : 0 (multipliers)
Name of .MLT File      : WAG
Receive Serials        : Y (record DOK in Serial field)
Mode                   : CW or SSB
Mixed-Mode             : Y or N (your choice)
If Yes
Mults count both modes : N
Work same station on
            both modes : Y

Work German stations only.  Log DOK in Serial field (DL
stations don't give serials).  To track multipliers, you
must then enter the first character of the DOK (A-Z) in
the Area Code (AC) field. 

If you're not worried about tracking multipliers, you
can always use SD Option 11, and record the DOKs in full.
When DARC publishes a Cabrillo layout for WAG I'll
update SDCHECK as necessary.
