The RSGB 1.8 MHz contest runs from 1900 - 2259Z on Saturday
10th February. It is CW-only on 160m (1810-1850 kHz).

Rules at

SD V19.23 supports this event -

Select the "RSGB 1.8 MHz" option.
  UK entrants, enter your district code on the
    opening screen.
  Non-UK entrants - leave this field blank.

If you see any other RSGB 1.8 MHz options listed, your
version of SD is out-of-date.

Work everyone, exchange Serials.  UK entrants add their
2-character district code.  SD lets you enter serials
and district codes as a single field (no space needed),
and leading zeros are not required.

For example: 5LN, followed by Enter, is logged as 005 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, with 5 bonus points for
the first QSO with each UK district and for the first
QSO with each non-UK country. Bonus QSOs are indicated
by highlighting the district code or the callsign, as

The Dutch PACC contest overlaps with this event. PA
contesters send their own 2-character district code
but no serial.  For these, enter zero for the serial
and ignore the district code. SD displays zero serials
as blank - but don't worry, they will be recorded as
zero in your Cabrillo .LOG  file.

Upload your Cabrillo log from SDCHECK at

Please mention SD in your soapbox comments.
