Has anything changed on the CW port software since V18.21? The last versions I
have tried, V19.21b and V19.22 do not reliably detect my Winkeyer clone. It
beeps as if the power or a reset command is sent on initialise, and SD doesn't
print Winkey V23 detected.
I have tried using V18.21's SD.INI file and an ini file from Bryn without

Check Partial and Super Check Partial (SCP) Window:
At times, and more frequently as QSO totals increased,
the SCP Window did not indicate that the call, or partial
call, on the logging line had already been worked. Fixed.
Dupe checking was not affected, but it helps to know
immediately if the call you're typing has the potential
to be a dupe.
When SCP is in effect, and there are many matches (for
example, DL), the display reverts temporarily to Check
Partial - showing matches from the log only.
The default is for SCP to be enabled. Use the SCP
command to toggle it.
If you're serious about using Check Partial or SCP as an
operating aid, it is more efficient to have the partial
calls listed close to (underneath) the Callsign field on
the logging line rather than in the Score Window. This
way, head or eye movement is minimised.
In the Getting Started section of SD's manual, the standard
settings for SD's Windows Size is Width 82, and Height 27.
With EXPAND enabled, the Height should be set to 36, and
the Font Size reduced to make SD's expanded window fit your
If you haven't a clue about what all this means, try the
EXPAND command to see for yourself - and read "Getting
Started" in the manual.

Fixed cosmetic display errors with pre-filled district
codes. District Codes are now pre-filled for UK stations
only. Pre-fills occur on a callsign match with a record
in .LST files loaded with the LOAD command. Any such
pre-filled code is cleared as characters are added to
the call, or the call is edited, such that there is no
longer a matching call in the .LST files.
ps - it seems to have worked - see the non-UK Unassisted

If you find bugs, send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
and send me your .ALL file.
Previous versions of SD are no longer supported, so please
confirm that any problem still exists in V19.22.
