The Stew Perry Topband Distance Challenge takes place from
1500 GMT on Saturday 30th December to 1459 Sunday 31st December.
This is a CW-only event on 160m - with a limit of 14 hours
Rules at
SD supports this event.  V13.11B runs on any Windows PC and
is free from

V13.11B is not the same version of SD as the one on general
release on the website.  It fixes two bugs in V13.11 -
relating to the display of grid squares logged and the
format of Cabrillo QSO records.
   Select SD's "Stew Perry Topband" template.
Work everybody.  Exchange 4-character grid square only - no
serial, no 5NN.  SD calculates the correct points for each
QSO based on distance.

If using SD's keyer, use Shift-F2 to update the exchange
with your grid square.  If necessary, edit the SD_LCTR
record in your SD.INI file (before the start of the contest)
to reflect your own 6-character locator.
After the contest, use SDCHECK (Option 1) to prepare your
Cabrillo .LOG file.  Email it, as an attached file, to  NOTE:  SD's Cabrillo QSO records
include RST Sent & Received - these are mandatory even
though they are not exchanged.
