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.

ARI Contest: 
    Updated ARI.MLT file supplied - with new area
    codes - thanks IZ2EZU. 

OKOM Contest:
    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
    QSO record.

    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.

Rig Control:
    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.

Keyboard Mode.
    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.
