Iy has been awhile since I contested, but if my memory
is not too concoluted, after a successful test, I copied
the SD.INI to another name, like CWTSD.INI, CQWWSD.INI,
or such. Next time in that contest, I just renamed the one I
wanted to just SD.INI and used it.

The simplest and most versatile way is to edit (and test) the relevant CW memories before a contest.  An alternative might be for me to add appropriate parameters in the template file for each contest - or to make provision for separate ini files for each contest.  But those options come with their own disadvantages.

It's easy to change the keyer parameters manually - with Shift-F1, F2 etc.  I see this as an essential overhead before the start of any CW contest.

I do the CWOps CWT every Wednesday and use SD in Linux. It works perfectly and controls both my rig and my Winkey. I want to enter the CQ WW CW contest at the end of the month. My problem is I have to reconfigure SD to send my zone. When I finish the contest is over I have to reconfigure again for the CWOps test. My solution to this problem is to have multiple sd.ini files. Is there an easier way? Especially as I want to enter multiple CW contests next year. I do have to say though, SD is a great program and works well in Ubuntu Linux.
