The UBA Contest takes place from 1300 UTC on Saturday 28th
February to 1259 UTC Sunday 1st March. It is CW-only on the
5 contest bands from 80-10m. There are single and all-band
categories for both HP and LP (100w).
Rules at www.uba.be/hf_contests/pdf/ubatest_dx.pdf. SDU
is the preferred logger.
SDU supports SO entries. V14.22 runs on Windows, on Linux/
Wine, and on Apple Mac with Bootcamp or Parallels. It is
free from www.ei5di.com. Note - you will need SDU, not SD.
ON entrants - select SDU Type 1
DX entrants - select SDU Type 2
Exchange 5NN and Serial. ON stations add their district
code. You may log the serial and district code in a
single field. For example 3WV (Enter) will be expanded
to 003 WV in their respective fields.
EU Members states work everyone, others work EU Member
states only. There are extra points for QSOs with ON.
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.
Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo .LOG file, and send
it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please mention SDU in your soapbox comments. This
encourages others to try it.
