V18.13 22 December 2015
RSGB 1.8 MHz Contests:
Updated for 2016 rules. CW-only.
RSGB AFS - CW:
Updated to permit logging on both 40m and 80m.
Multipliers now count by band and by mode.
UKEI DX Contest
SDCHECK - Cabrillo logs. The Section, UKEI or DX,
corresponding to your call, defaulted to the wrong
The Section, UKEI or DX, was repeated for each
Cabrillo header. Fixed.
When editing previously logged QSOs, some callsign
prefixes, for example MI, were not recognised as
UK prefixes. In turn, the District Code field
could not be accessed. Fixed. Thanks EI2KA.
When connected, whether at startup or later, the
Com port and WinKey version number (the chip) are
shown. For example, "WinKey Com5 - V30". This
confirms that WinKey has been enabled, and the
version number helps with diagnostics.
Dupe checking is now reset each session - when the
time between successive QSOs is greater than two
hours. Previously, the SETDUPE command was required
at the start of each session. Thanks LA2OJ.
For post-contest logging, SETDUPE may be used as
before, but a simpler option is to ignore it, then
restart SD and let it rescore the log.
Any QSO in the log may be edited, but no real-time
consistency checks are done for dupes or mults.
However, after a restart SD will do this and score
the log correctly.
Added Srl and Coords to the logging header. They
are entered as separate fields.
Let me know if you need support for other contests.
When you install a new version of SD, or when you
change to Windows 10, you may have to adjust the
size of the default window to fill your screen.
If necessary, do this for both SD and SDCHECK.
Click on the SD icon, at the top LHS of SD's window
and select Properties, then Font. If you have use
a widescreen (16:9) monitor, select the Lucida Console
font. For a 4:3 monitor, select the Consolas font
(not available on XP). Then choose whatever size of
font you prefer. SD's window expands or contracts in
direct proportion to the chosen font size.
If the display gets corrupted, use the CLEAR command
on SD's logging line.
If you find bugs in V18.13, send the details to
email@example.com. Older versions are not
supported, so please confirm that the problem
exists in V18.13.
