This is a summary of recent releases.
Please let me know if you would like support for
other contests to be added.
16.11 18th January 2013
Fixed (hard-coded) the Cabrillo QSO records.
This was necessary because, as in RSGB RoPoCo,
the exchange you send includes part of the
exchange received in the previous QSO - direct
mapping from the .ALL file is inadequate.
General-Purpose Template Options:
Until now, I've provided several options,
but never really knew which was which.
There are now three only. They facilitate
logging in events for which there is no
The exchange options are -
1. Send a serial only (apart from RST)
2. No serial, but some other fixed information.
3. Send a serial plus some other fixed information.
The corresponding template options are -
1. General, Serial
2. General, No Serial
3. General, Serial +
Option 1 tracks DXCC countries as multipliers,
by band and mode (if you use both modes). Mults
have no other significance as they are not marked
in Cabrillo QSO records.
In Option 3, serials and other exchange elements
are logged in a single, space-separated, field.
V16.10 12th January 2013
DCACCEPT Template Parameter:
Added to indicate automatic acceptance of any
district code logged, even if it's not already
present in the .MLT file.
This parameter replaces hard-coding for DARC
contests with DOKs, for Holyland and RDXC
districts, and for IOTA island references.
CQ and ARRL single-mode contests:
Separate templates supplied for the CW and SSB
events. This is to prevent having to hard-code
non-standard Cabrillo contest names such as
ARRL-DX-SSB (I believe Mode should be confined
to the CATEGORY-MODE: tag), and to keep dumb
robots and intransigent contest sponsors happy.
V16.09 2nd January 2013
In contests with the NORST parameter set in
the template files, SD crashed if nothing was
entered in the exchange field. Fixed, thanks
CQMM DX Contest (PY):
Added to the list of free and unrestricted
V16.08 21st December 2012
Added support, but not including scoring based
