V15.46          13th July 2011

IOTA Contest:
     Non-island stations, in countries with one or
     more IOTA islands, could be logged with a
     spurious IOTA Reference.  Fixed, thanks LA8OM.

     NOTE:  If, for whatever reason, you log QSOs
     with IOTA references that shouldn't be there,
     you will lose points.

     Do NOT use any earlier version of SD in the
     IOTA contest.

ZAP Command:
     When reloading a log, SD did not delete QSOs
     marked with the /Z suffix.  As a result,
     subsequent ZAP commands failed.  Fixed, thanks

All contests:
     SD now defaults to an expanded desktop, with
     the Check Partial data shown below the logging
     line.  The EXPAND comand toggles this option.

     SCP (Super Check Partial) is another default
     option, using MASTER.DTA which is distributed
     with SD.  This file contains the calls of all
     contesters who are active in major events.
     Other reference subsets may be downloaded from  They must be named
     MASTER.DTA in the SD folder, otherwise SD
     will not find them.

     If you prefer not to use SCP, toggle it with
     the SCP command.

Rig Control:
     In mixed-mode events, band changes on the rig
     occasionally caused a spurious mode or sideband
     change on the new band.  Fixed, thanks EI7GY.

     The RS (Reverse Sideband) command in 15.45
     has been replaced by the X (eXchange) command
     - it's faster.  SD now tracks the most recently
     selected sideband on each band, independently
     for both CW and SSB, whether switched on the
     rig itself or from SD with the X command.  Note
     that not all rigs support alternate sidebands
     on CW.

     As you return to each band, SD reverts to
     the previously used sideband and mode.
     When a band has not been used previously in
     the current session, the frequency defaults
     to near the lower band edge.

     When you enter frequencies directly, the
     rig is switched to the appropriate sideband
     on SSB.  For CW frequencies, the sideband
     is set to your preference, normal or
     reverse, as set by the CWREVERSE command.

IARU HF Championship:
     Although 3-digit zones can not be logged
     directly, this could happen when editing
     earlier QSOs.  In these circumstances, SD
     would not reload the log.  Fixed, thanks


If you find bugs in V15.46, please post full
details to this mailing list.  Older versions
are not supported, so you should first confirm
that the problem exists in this version.

Please let me know what you would like to see
changed or added.
