The Oceania DX SSB contest takes place from 0800 UTC Saturday 1st October
to 0759 UTC Sunday 2nd October.

Rules at

SD directly supports this contest.  V12.03 runs on any Windows PC
and is free from

SD Setup:
Select the "Oceania" template.

Enter the Mode as SSB.

Exchange 59 + Serial.  Oceania stations work everyone, and non-Oceania
stations work Oceania only.  If you're outside Oceania, and you're not
sure what's OK to work and what's not, don't worry - because SD shows
inappropriate callsigns in red as you enter prefixes.  You can use Esc
to quickly clear them.

It's an all-band contest, from 10 to 160m, and SD scores valid QSOs as
20 points on 160m, 10 on 80m, 5 on 40m, 1 on 20m, 2 on 15m and 3 on 10m.

After the contest, use SDCHECK, Option 1, to create your .LOG file in
Cabrillo format.  Rename it with the call you used for the contest,
and email it as an attached file to
