Paul recently updated SD to v10.11 to reflect this change. It looks 
like a change specific to the Cabrillo spec for CQ160.

It actually took me three goes to get my log uploaded, the first time 
I found QST had printed the wrong email submission address...

On another matter, I find SDCHECK v10.09 (DOS version) crashes when I 
use the .PRT output option. I had to use v10.01 to do a hardcopy of 
the log.
