The REF SSB contest takes place from 0600 UTC Saturday 28th January
to 1759 UTC Sunday 29th January.

Rules (in French) at

SD supports this contest.  It runs on any Windows PC, and is free

Select SD's "REF, DX" template (outside France) and
            "REF, F" template  (French side)

French stations send 59 + département number or country prefix
(Overseas Territories).  Others send 59 + Serial, and work
"French" stations only - with multipliers for départements and
certain country prefixes.

French stations include Mainland France, Corsica, and French
Overseas Territories.

NOTE for entrants outside France.  Scoring is by continent, but
SD does not know what continent you're in, unless your prefix and
country are added to the REFDX file.  Please copy your own country
record from DXCC.CTY into REFDX.CTY.  You must do this before the
contest for SD to score correctly.

It's easy to identify which stations you can work for points. When
SD displays the country name and beam heading, after you've entered
two or more callsign characters, then it's OK to call.  You can log
other stations, but they will not score.

After the Contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo .LOG file,
rename it to YOURCALL.LOG and email it, as an attached file, to
