The first UK/EI DX takes place from 12:00z Saturday 5th
to 11:59z Sunday 6th December. It is SSB-only on the
five contest bands from 80m to 10m, and is organised
by the UK & Ireland Contest Club - UKEICC.
SD V18.12 supports this contest - from www.ei5di.com
Earlier versions will not work.
Select SD's "UKEICC DX, SSB" option.
UK and EI entrants should enter their district code on
the opening screen, all others leave this blank.
District Codes are unchanged from RSGB district codes
except for GI, Northern Ireland - BT has been removed
and replaced by six county codes. EI and GI entrants
will be expected to know their codes - they're listed
at the end of the rules.
Everyone works everyone. Multipliers are DXCC countries
and UK/EI district codes per band. UK/EI QSOs can be
district mults, but not country mults. UK and EI
entrants get double points for all QSOs between 0100z
and 0459z on Sunday.
Exchange serials (no reports). UK & EIs add their
district code. SD gives you the option to enter
serial and district as a single field. For example,
51DU is expanded to 051 DU when logged.
After the contest, you have two hours to upload your
Cabrillo log (from SDCHECK) at
and preliminary results will be published later on
Have fun, and please mention SD in your Cabrillo soapbox
ps - you'll need to use V18.12
