The UBA Contest takes place from 1300 UTC on Saturday 26th
to 1259 UTC Sunday 27th January.  It is SSB-only on the 5
contest bands from 80 - 10m.  There are single and all-band
categories for both HP and LP (100w).

Rules at

SD can not be used.  You should use SDU - it's dedicated to
the UBA contest and is specifically recommended in the rules.
SDU V13.33 supports SO entries.  It runs on any Windows PC
and is free from

  ON entrants - select SDU Type 1
  DX entrants - select SDU Type 2

QSOs with Belgian stations score   10 points,
     with EU Member State stations  3 points
     other stations                 1 point

EU Members states work everyone, others work EU Member
states only.

Exchange 59 and Serial.  ON stations add their province
abbreviation.   You may log the serial and province in a
single field.  For example 3WV (Enter) will be expanded
to 003 WV in their respective fields.

Multipliers include some DXCC countries that are European
Union members, but not in the continent of Europe. If you
use another logger, you may miss multipliers.

A single QSO with a Belgian station may count as two
multipliers - both prefix and province.

After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your .LOG file
in Cabrillo format.  Rename it to YOURCALL.CBR and email
it, as an attached file, to

Please mention SDU in your soapbox comments.
