V18.36  11 September 2016

RSGB International DX Contest:
    Updated for new rules and scoring (both sides).

Sharing Ports for CW and Rig Control:
    This is a legacy of the time when some PCs had
    only a single physical serial port.  With USB
    ports, there can be any number of virtual serial
    ports.  The option to share COM ports, using the
    SHARE command, is discontinued.

Rig Control:
    The POLLTIME and LINKTIME parameters are now based
    directly on the bit rate selected for rig control.
    As such, the commands are redundant.

    SO2R support is discontinued.

    Semicolon gives an instant QRS, and a second one
    restores normal CW speed.  The QRS command has been
    added to permit any chosen speed reduction from
    10 to 30 percent.  Thanks K1ESE.

    This applies to both WinKey and SD's internal keyer.
    With WinKey, however, it works only when CW speed is
    controlled from the keyboard, not from WinKey's speed
    pot.  If necessary, use the POT command to toggle
    control to the keyboard.  Under keyboard control,
    change speed with Page Up and Page Down.


If you find bugs in V18.36, send the details to Older versions are not
supported, so please confirm that the problem
exists in V18.36.

Let me know if you need support for other contests.
