V10.12 20 February 2004
SD - ZAP command:
The ZAP command has been reinstated. It lets
you delete the most recent QSO, and updates
points and adjusts dupe and mult totals as
necessary. DEL is an alternative to ZAP.
Apart from using ZAP to delete QSOs logged in
error, it's useful for logging a few practice
QSOs before the start of a contest, to check
that everything is working OK. Then you can ZAP
them all, one at a time, before logging real
SD - Edit points on QSOs already logged.
The POINTS (or PTS) command lets you edit the
points for any QSO without leaving SD. It's not
very elegant, but it works and it adjusts band
and mode totals as appropriate.
If you do not enter a new points value, nothing
SD - CQ WPX Contest.
Restored automatic display of prefix sets worked
and wanted as you enter callsigns. For example,
with DL in the callsign field, you see the status
of all 10 prefixes from DL0 to DL9, and the ones
shown in bold are wanted.
SD - Type 10: General, Country and Area Multipliers.
Added option to ignore country mults, as in the
Hungarian contest (with Area mults for HA QSOs
only), but to use the country file (usually
DXCC.CTY) to calculate the correct points for
other QSOs based on continent.
SD - Your callsign on the opening screen.
Fixed interpretation of own country for calls
of the type G4RCG/HI. This affected calculation
of points for QSOs based on continent. Calls of
the type HI/G4RCG had been treated correctly.
SD - FOC Marathon.
Edits on previous QSOs zeroised the score for
that QSO. Fixed.
The Score Summary window now shows five-band
and six-band totals.
When FOC.LST is loaded, and a membership number
is entered in the callsign field, a second enter
retrieves the member's callsign. There may be a
conflict with SD's rig QSY feature, as some
membership numbers are over 1800. To force a QSY,
add Q to the number. For example 1823 + Enter
fetches the callsign for FOC member 1823. 1823Q
moves the rig to 1823 kHz.
SD Type 11 - unrestricted option for RSGB AFS & CC:
It was possible to start SD in such a way that
limited unregistered users to 30 QSOs. Fixed.
The BPS command (to set serial port baud rate)
was broken. Fixed.
Added Cabrillo option in SDCHECK.
Fixed broken code for the audit feature - it
stopped SDX from running.
AUTOCW: Once selected, it stays selected, and
it is not reset by playing any memory key.
Fixed the .PRT print file option - did not list
Serial Sent for the RSGB Club Championship.
