For SD to calculate distance, and points, correctly,
you need to edit the SD-LCTR parameter in SDCONFIG.TXT
to the correct value for your location.  Otherwise it
will be the default for your country, as derived from
the co-ordinates in DXCC.CTY, and that can lead to big
errors in big countries!

Select SD Type 11
Points per QSO       : 1 (SD will calculate points)
Contest Type         : L (Locators)
CW or SSB            : CW
Mixed-Mode           : N

If you're not using rig control, don't forget to change
band to 160m - with the commands B160 or 160M

I haven't checked the Cabrillo log for this event recently.
Please let me know if you have any problems with acceptance
by the robot, and I'll make whatever changes are required.
