V18.13  22 December 2015

RSGB 1.8 MHz Contests:
    Updated for 2016 rules. CW-only.

    Updated to permit logging on both 40m and 80m.

PACC Contest:
    Multipliers now count by band and by mode.

UKEI DX Contest
    SDCHECK - Cabrillo logs. The Section, UKEI or DX,
    corresponding to your call, defaulted to the wrong
    option. Fixed.

    The Section, UKEI or DX, was repeated for each
    Cabrillo header.  Fixed.

    When editing previously logged QSOs, some callsign
    prefixes, for example MI, were not recognised as
    UK prefixes.  In turn, the District Code field
    could not be accessed.  Fixed.  Thanks EI2KA.

    When connected, whether at startup or later, the
    Com port and WinKey version number (the chip) are
    shown.  For example, "WinKey Com5 - V30".  This
    confirms that WinKey has been enabled, and the
    version number helps with diagnostics.

NRRL Fylkestest:
    Dupe checking is now reset each session - when the
    time between successive QSOs is greater than two
    hours. Previously, the SETDUPE command was required
    at the start of each session.  Thanks LA2OJ.

    For post-contest logging, SETDUPE may be used as
    before, but a simpler option is to ignore it, then
    restart SD and let it rescore the log.

    Any QSO in the log may be edited, but no real-time
    consistency checks are done for dupes or mults.
    However, after a restart SD will do this and score
    the log correctly.

RAEM Contest:
    Added Srl and Coords to the logging header.  They
    are entered as separate fields.


Let me know if you need support for other contests.

When you install a new version of SD, or when you
change to Windows 10, you may have to adjust the
size of the default window to fill your screen.
If necessary, do this for both SD and SDCHECK.

Click on the SD icon, at the top LHS of SD's window
and select Properties, then Font.  If you have use
a widescreen (16:9) monitor, select the Lucida Console
font.  For a 4:3 monitor, select the Consolas font
(not available on XP).  Then choose whatever size of
font you prefer.  SD's window expands or contracts in
direct proportion to the chosen font size.

If the display gets corrupted, use the CLEAR command
on SD's logging line.

If you find bugs in V18.13, send the details to Older versions are not
supported, so please confirm that the problem
exists in V18.13.
