V13.01 30 April 2006
SD - Updated QSO Record Format:
SD's .ALL file record length has been extended
to allow more flexibility with exchanges and to
remove the previous limit on area multipliers.
This will enable SD to support more contests,
including ARRL SS and Field Day.
The QSO record length is now 66 characters - it
was 56. SD V13 and later will not support the
older files. However, SDCHECK V13 supports
both the old and new formats, so you can still
generate Cabrillo and ADIF logs from any .ALL
file. As such, I'm not planning to offer a
conversion program for the old .ALL files.
If you think you might like to use SD on your
older 56-character files, it's probably best
to rename SD V12 as SDOLD.EXE, before you
download V13. You can always get V12 from the
vaults at www.ei5di.com/vaults.
Files generated by SDC, SDI, SDU, SDV and SDX
are unchanged. With the exception of SDV, the
record length remains at 56 characters.
SD and other HF Loggers - Callsign Display:
The callsign you're using is shown on the
Date/Time line. It's useful as a reminder when
it's not your normal call.
7QP - 7th Call Area QSO Party:
Templates and multiplier files added for both
sides of this event.
Prefix mults were counted on each band. Fixed.
IARU HF Championship.
HQ field extended to 5 characters.
RSGB Clubs Championship:
When a log was re-started with SD, an extra
bonus point was shown in the Summary Score
window. Fixed - thanks G3VQO.
Contests with Country & Area Mults - old Type 10.
Broken code stopped non-area QSOs logging.
EU Sprint - CW.
Leading zeros are now included/excluded from
the keyer Serial according to your preferences
set with the CWZERO command.
Fixed area code validation in contests with
area code multipliers.
Increased the prefix limit for DXCC.CTY - for
contests with country multipliers.
SD is free from www.ei5di.com.
If you find any new bugs, please send details to
email@example.com. Keep an older version of any
program you download - as insurance. Some older
versions are available from www.ei5di.com/sd/vaults
