The WAE DX Contest takes place from 00:00 UTC on Saturday
13th to 23:59 UTC on Sunday 14th August.  It's a CW-only
event on the 5 contest bands from 10 to 80m.

Rules at http://www.darc.de/referate/dx/xedcwr.htm

SD directly supports this contest. V11.34 runs on any Windows
PC and is freeware from www.ei5di.com.

Europeans work non-Europeans and vice-versa.  SD displays
inappropriate callsigns or prefixes in red.

Your score shown, while logging, reflects the correct
weighting for multipliers on each band.

QTCs are the fun, and challenging, part of this contest.
Non-Europeans send details of previously logged QSOs, known
as QTCs, and Europeans log the QTCs for extra points - see
the rules web page for more information.

SD supports QTCs for both sides of this contest. To see how
it all works, set up a WAE test file, log a few QSOs and
then enter the QTC command in the callsign field.

Note:  If, for example, W3LPL sends a QTC as 0905 DL1AA 215,
you can log this, in SD, as 0905DL1AA215, followed by Enter.
This is faster and simpler than entering the fields separately,
but you may do that if you prefer.

After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo-
format .LOG entry file. If you log/send QTCs, SD generates
an additional .QTC file.  Email them, as attached files,
to waedc at dxhf.darc.de.
