This contest runs from 1900-2259z tomorrow, Saturday
18th November.  It is CW-only on 1810-1850kHz.

   Select SD's "RSGB 1.8 MHz" option.

Work everyone. It's two points per QSO, with a bonus
of five points for each new UK district or DXCC
country (not including UK countries).

Exchange 5NN plus Serial + District Code.  There
are at least two other contests taking place at the
same time, including the Austrian 160m Contest and
the REF 160m Contest.  There is no requirement to
log anything other than serials from non-UK stations.
If no serial is received, enter zero.

SD, by default, logs QSOs with non-UK stations once
you complete the Serial field (with Enter).  If you
can't resist logging Austrian or French districts,
tab to SD's District Code field after completing the

When logging UK stations, the quickest option is to
enter Serial and District Code as a single field,
with no spaces.  For example 28RG, followed by Enter,
logs the QSO with 028 RG in the correct fields.

Remember to update your CW "exchange" messages,
F2 F4 and F6, with your district code, if appropriate.

Upload logs at
by midnight, Sunday 19th.

SD V19.21 is available from
