V12.07 2nd December 2005
RSGB 1.8 MHz Contest.
For DX entrants, in this and other contests
where DX entrants work "home" countries only,
you can now log other DX entrants who happen to
call - either they don't know the rules or they
need you for points in a simultaneous contest.
Previously, SD insisted on a valid (and
irrelevant) home country area code for DX QSOs.
The DX QSOs are counted in QSO totals, but do
not score points or count as multipliers. They
should be deleted from your Cabrillo log before
submitting your entry.
LZ DX Contest:
Updated, for LZ entrants, to permit entry of a
district code instead of ITU Zone in the opening
The district is integrated with the keyer (F2
Fixed Multiplier Summary display when restarting
Fixed broken Zones Worked/Wanted window. The fix
was to edit the LZDX.MLT file to place the LZ
district codes after the numeric zone entries.
Updated ARI.MLT file supplied - with new area
codes - thanks IZ2EZU.
For "Home" (OK/OM) entrants, scoring on 40, 80
and 160m was doubled - a legacy of WPX scoring.
For OK/OM entrants, SDCHECK now requests the
district code for insertion into each Cabrillo
The text output option (for import into Excel
or other applications) now has a CSV extension
rather than TXT - to avoid clashes with the
TXT audit file created with the AUDIT command.
IRTS 80m Counties Contest EI/GI:
Added IRELAND.MLT and corresponding templates
for EI/GI and overseas entrants.
V12.06 16th November 2005
ARRL 160m Contest.
Templates added for both sides of this event.
Some rigs would not follow band changes on the
rig - even though they displayed the correct
frequency at all times. Fixed - thanks to help
with my code from M1MAJ.
Control file TT538.SD supplied - thanks G4SFU.
It works with the TenTec Jupiter and Argonaut.
Some keys did not work because of a conflict
in the code for the arrow keys in V12.05.
Fixed - however, some users may find the arrow
keys do not work for selecting templates.
I'm still looking for a fix for that.
