Europeans work non-Europeans and vice-versa.
SD displays inappropriate callsigns or prefixes (and dupes)
in red as you type them. Your score shown, while logging,
reflects the correct weighting for multipliers on each band.
QTCs are the fun, and challenging, part of this contest.
Non-Europeans send details of previously logged QSOs, known
as QTCs, and Europeans log the QTCs for extra points - see
the rules web page for more information.
As you enter callsigns, SD tracks and displays the number of
remaining QTCs available from that station - up to a maximum
of 10. You can log your quota of 10 QTCs, from each station,
in more than 1 batch. Even if a particular callsign is a
"dupe", SD still shows how many QTCs, if any, are available.
SD supports QTCs for both sides of this contest. To see how
to send or log QTCs, set up a WAE test file, log a few QSOs
and then enter the QTC command in the callsign field.
Note: If, for example, W3LPL sends a QTC as 0905 DL1AA 215,
you can log this, in SD, as 0905DL1AA215, followed by Enter.
This is faster and simpler than entering the fields separately,
but you may do that if you prefer.
After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo-
format .LOG entry file. If you log/send QTCs, SD generates
an additional .QTC file. Email them, as attached files,
