V9.98   7 February 2003

Contests with Serial and Area Codes.
    In SD Type 4 and 10 - including all RSGB events
    with District Codes, you can now enter serial
    and area code in a single field.  If you prefer
    the traditional method, you can still enter both
    fields separately.

    In SD Type 10 for RSGB contests, the option to
    record other data (in addition to serial) from
    non-UK stations has been removed from the
    logging line - there's no point in logging data
    that's not relevant to your contest and which
    cannot be cross-checked.  

    If you feel obliged to log such data, it can
    still be done in edit mode.  Alternatively, you
    can continue to use any version of SD prior to
    V9.98 - your Cabrillo log from SDCHECK will not
    be compromised.

    This is the only log format now supported by
    SDCHECK, to include all RSGB HF contests with
    the exception of the Club Calls Contest.

    If you think you might need the old formats
    (RSGB or ARRL) for any reason, keep an earlier
    copy of SDCHECK.

    If you add the records SD_EMAIL and SD_CLUB to
    the configuration file SDCONFIG.TXT, they will
    be displayed as the default entries for your
    Cabrillo logs when you run SDCHECK - this will
    save you having to enter them every time.

SDCHECK - Print Option.
    RSGB AFS logs did not show Serial Sent. Fixed.

SDI - IOTA Contest.
    Following a callsign edit on the logging line,
    a spurious IOTA reference could be logged, and
    perhaps flagged as a multiplier.  Fixed.

    SDICHECK now outputs a Cabrillo log.

MEXICO.MLT file added.


The programs may be downloaded from http://www.ei5di.com

Please let me know what you'd like to see in the next
update, and keep a copy of whatever version you're using
now - as insurance!
