The SP DX Contest takes place from 15:00 UTC on Saturday 6th
to 14:59 UTC Sunday 7th April.  There are single and all-band
categories on the 6 HF contest bands for SSB, CW and Mixed,
together with a three-band (any three bands of your choice)
Mixed HP category. There are HP and LP sections in all other
SO categories, and an additional QRP section for SOAB Mixed.

Rules at

SD V17.00 supports this event - from or
directly from

    SP entrants - use the "SPDX, Poland" template.
    Others      - use the "SPDX, DX" template.

SP entrants work everyone, others work SP only.

SP entrants send their single-character district code.
Others send a serial.

For non-SP entrants, mults are district codes by band,
regardless of mode - with a maximum of 16 per band.
SD displays non-Polish calls in red.  If they're not
red, you can work them for points.

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo log, and send it to

NOTE:  SP entrants must edit the last line in their
template file QSPDXSP.TPL - otherwise serials will
be missing from their Cabrillo QSO records.

It should read as follows:

MAP         :54 5 74            'Serial Rcvd

Spacing doesn't matter as long as each field is
separated by one or more spaces.

Please mention SD in your Cabrillo soapbox comments,
if only to say you used it.
