This is an interesting new event.  It is 80m CW-Only
and runs from 1800z Saturday 8th to 0759z Sunday 9th
March - that's 14 hours, but there is also an 8-hour,
"limited time" option.

What's new is that 4-character locators are exchanged,
and scores are based solely on the distance (1 pt/km)
for each QSO.

Rules at

SD V17.29 is free from

  Select the "Tesla Memorial" option, and
  enter your own 4-character locator.

Work everyone on 80m CW - there are no mults.

Exchange serial and 4-character locator.  SD lets you
log these as a single field.  For example, 6IO63 will
be logged as 006 and IO63 in the respective fields.

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo log, and upload it at

Please mention SD in your soapbox comments.

I'll be spending some time in this contest myself.
Hope to see you there.
