The ARRL DX Contest takes place from 0000 UTC Saturday
to 2359 Sunday 15/16 February.  It is CW-only on the 6
contest bands from 160-10m.  There are single and
all-band categories for HP, LP (150w) and QRP.

Rules at

SD V17.28 is free from

  W/VE entrants - select the "ARRL DX CW, W/VE" template.
  All others    - select the "ARRL DX CW, DX"   template.

Please take care not to select the ARRL 10m or ARRL 160m

W/VE entrants work DX only, send state/province. Mults
are DXCC countries by band.

All others work W/VE only, send power.  Mults are W/VE
states/provinces by band (63).  When logging the W/VE
state/province, SD lets you enter anything relevant and
it will log the standard 2-character code (if you're not
familiar with them).  For example, enter F (on its own)
for Florida - or B (on its own) for British Columbia.
KE or KEN is logged as KY (Kentucky).

After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo
log, and send it to dxcw at arrl dot org. Please mention
SD in your soapbox comments.
