V17.01         5th April 2013

Band Map:
    What was previously SD's Quick Memory feature
    has been expanded to the equivalent of a band
    map.  Even though SD does not integrate with
    the internet to display cluster and RBN spots,
    a band map can be useful - it saves time in
    identifying stations already worked or flagged
    as you tune up and down the bands.

    With rig control enabled, calls are shown as
    you tune close to (within the threshold of) their
    original recorded QSO frequencies. The default
    threshold is 300 Hz, and may be changed with
    the THRESHOLD command.

    Calls already worked are shown in lower case.
    Calls not worked (ones that you deleted from
    the logging line with Minus) are highlighted.

    When you log successive QSOs on the same
    frequency (while running), only the most
    recent call logged on that frequency is shown
    when you next tune across the frequency.

    When you log successive QSOs with the same
    station, on different bands, the second QSO
    is not stored in the band map.

    The band map may be more useful in shorter
    contests, where many stations occupy a fixed
    "run" frequency for most of the time - you
    see their "worked" or "not worked" status
    without having to wait for them to identify.

    At present, band map entries do not expire
    unless you delete them - use F10 to display
    the complete table of entries.  For V17.02
    I will add the option to delete those older
    than any selected time period.

SP DX Contest.
    SPDX.LST, a callsign/district reference file
    with 12500 entries, is automatically loaded
    for the DX (non-SP) side of this contest.
    On callsign matches, the district code is

    For Polish entrants, the Serial Received was
    missing from Cabrillo QSOs.  Fixed, thanks

Commonwealth Contest:
    When logging HQ stations already worked on
    other bands, the HQ field is pre-filled.
    Thanks G3LET.
