The EU Sprint takes place from 16:00 to 19:59 UTC on
Saturday 14th April.  It is SO CW-only, on 80, 40 & 20m.

Rules at
Note the QSY rule.

SD V15.60 supports the Sprint -

     Select the "EU Sprint" template.
     Enter the Mode as CW, and your Name for the exchange.

EU entrants:  Work everyone on 80, 40 & 20m.
DX entrants:  Work EU only.

Exchange Serial & Name & both callsigns. There are no mults.

If you load a .LST callsign/name file with the LOAD command,
SD autofills the Name on a callsign match.  If the name has
changed, overtype with the correct name.

If there is no match on callsign, it's faster to enter the
Serial and Name as a single field - with no spaces.  For
example:  SD logs "2FRED" as "002 FRED".

The Sprint has a recommended format for exchanges.  For
example, you must send both callsigns as part of each
exchange - however the position of your own callsign
lets listeners know whether you have to QSY, or if they
can can you, once the QSO ends.   It's best to use ESM
(Enter Sends Message) and let SD take care of all the
exchanges - they're hard-coded in the appropriate
formats for both Run and S&P.

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo .LOG file - send it
to  Please mention SD in your soapbox
