Exchange Serials. UK stations add their 2-character
district code. SD lets you enter UK serials and district
codes as a single field (no space needed between fields).
Leading zeros are not required.
For example: 15LN, followed by Enter, is logged as 015 LN
UK stations should edit SD's exchange messages - F2, F4
F6 (using Shift-F2 etc) to include their district code.
Scoring is 2 points per QSO, and 5 bonus points for the
first QSO with each UK district and for the first QSO
with each non-UK country.
The Austrian 160m and Russian WW contests overlap with
this event. In each case "home" stations send a serial
and their own 2-character district codes. If you choose
to log these codes, press Tab (not Enter) after the
serial. If you forget and log the QSO too soon, use
Up Arrow to edit the logged QSO - tab across to the
district code field. Non-UK districts do not score
You should practice on a test file before the contest.
