The UBA SSB contest takes place from 1300 UTC Saturday 31st
January to 1300 UTC Sunday 1st February.

Here's an extract from the Contest Rules.

   "We strongly encourage participants to use a freeware log
    software as SDU from EI5DI... "

Last year 2003, the winner of the 16th EUROPEAN COMMUNITY TROPHY
in the UBA CW Contest was G5LP - using SDU, of course!  You can
download SDU from

The contest is SSB only, on all bands, 80m to 10m, with the rules
at  (follow the Contest Rules link).

As SDU is dedicated to this contest, setup is simple,
   ON entrants - select SDU Type 1
   DX entrants (outside ON) - select SDU Type 2

Work everyone, and exchange RST and Serial.  ON stations will also
give their province abbreviations, and the latest version of SDU
lets you log serial and province in a single field, for example
003WV (you can leave out the leading zeros), or you can log the
two fields separately if you prefer.

Multipliers are Belgian provinces, Belgian prefixes, and DXCC
countries in the European Union (LA is not a multiplier).  A
single QSO with a Belgian station may count as two multipliers,
both prefix and province.

After the contest, use SDCHECK (included with SDU) to create your
summary file (.SUM), and complete this with any editor or word

Do NOT use SDCHECK to create a Cabrillo .LOG file - the UBA
prefers the "raw" .ALL file from SDU.  Rename your files as
YOURCALL.ALL and YOURCALL.SUM, and email them as attached files
to within 30 days.
