The RSGB 1.8 MHz Contest takes place for four hours,
starting at 2100 UTC on Saturday 19th November. It is
CW-only on 160m (1810 - 1870 kHz).

Rules at

SD V15.55 supports the updated rules -

     UK Entrants - select the "RSGB 1.8 Nov UK" template.
     All others  - select the "RSGB 1.8 Nov DX" template.

Please be careful not to select any other RSGB 1.8

UK and EU entrants work everyone.  All others work UK
only.  Exchange Serials.

UK stations add their 2-character district code - edit
SD's F2 exchange message (using Shift-F2) to include
yours, if appropriate.

When logging UK stations, enter the serial and district in
a single field.  For example: 26WA, followed by Enter, is
expanded to 026 and WA in their respective fields.

SD pre-fills the district code when you load a callsign
reference file (.LST) with district codes.  For example -

When logging OE (Austrian) stations giving their own
district code, tab to this field after entering their
serial - otherwise SD will log the QSO without the
district code.

Please practice with a test file before the contest.

Use SDCHECK create your Cabrillo .LOG file.

     Contest Name    : RSGB-160

     District Code   : UK - Enter your 2-character code as sent.
                     : Non-UK - leave blank

Please mention SD in your soapbox comments as this
encourages others to try it.
