V20.07  3 August 2018

SCP - Super Check Partial:
    When typing calls on the logging line, the colour now changes
    to yellow (from white - SD's default for the QSO being logged)
    with a match to any full call displayed in the SCP window.
    This way, and without looking away from the logging line, you
    can be confident that the call you're logging is valid.

EU HF Championship:
    Template updated to load MASTERDX.DTA (supplied), the latest
    SCP file omitting NA calls.

Changing Band - with Rig Control:
    Due to broken code in V20.06, direct frequency QSY commands
    changed band but not to the exact frequency entered.  Fixed,
    thanks GM4SID.

V20.06 26 July 2018

IOTA Contest:
    Formatting error in IOTA references corrected. For example,
    EU5 was logged as EU5, and is now logged correctly as EU005.

    IOTA.LST has been updated for 2018, to include announced
    DXpeditions. It is loaded automatically for this contest.

    Country reference file SDIOTA.CTY updated.

ESM Switching;
    Added alternatives to the Apostrophe key for toggling
    ESM, and to the Grave key for toggling between RUN and
    S&P.  The Alt key is used, rather than Ctrl (as in N1MM)
    because SD uses the Ctrl key solely to enter Keyboard
    mode in CW events.

    Alt-M toggles ESM  (left-Alt only).
    Alt-R or Alt-S toggles between Run & S&P modes.
    Note: Alt-R does not assert RUN, and Alt-S does not
    assert S&P. They simply toggle the mode when ESM is

    Left-Alt must be used, as Right-Alt has been a long-term
    alternative to Ctrl (keyboard mode) for some non-UK/US
    keyboards where Ctrl does not work as expected.

Changing Band - with no Rig Control:
    Enter a frequency in the Callsign field (in kHz) to
    change to the relevant  band.  For example, 14018
    changes to 20m.  Note that, in Cabrillo QSO records,
    the frequency logged will be the lower band edge
    frequency.  This is an alternative to the B20 or 14M
    commands (which are retained).

    With rig control enabled, the rig QSYs to 14108. Decimal
    frequencies are supported - for example 14108.6.
