These characters tell you the number of multipliers
for each QSO - the snag is they only appear correctly
when you run SDV in a window (not full-screen) using
the Lucida Console font.

That appears as a super-script "3" in Lucida Console,
meaning 3 mults - country, locator square and district.
Were there country mults in the 6m contest?   If not,
an incorrect option when chosen when starting SDV.

That one displays consistently - it means 2 mults.

> 3. Another call-sign had the 'square-root' symbol

That appears as a super-script "1" in Lucida Console.

To switch to Ludida console, with SDV running in a window,
click on the SD icon on the top LHS of the window, then
Properties - Font - Lucida Console and select the font
size closest to filling the screen - and save your settings.
