The RSGB 21/28 MHz CW Contest takes place from 0700 to 1900 UTC
on Sunday 16th October.

Rules at www.contesting.co.uk/hfcc/rules/r2128.shtml

SD supports this contest.  V12.04 runs on any Windows PC and is
free from www.ei5di.com/sd/setup.exe.  

SD Setup:
UK Entrants:   Select the "RSGB 21/28, UK" template.
DX Entrants:   Select the "RSGB 21/28, DX" template.

Enter Mode as CW.

UK entrants work DX only.  Send 5NN + Serial + district code.
DX entrants work UK only.  Send 5NN + Serial.

DX entrants may log Serial & District Code in a single field.
For example:  6AB will be logged as 006 AB in the respective

UK entrants - add your District Code to the F2 (exchange) memory.
For example, #C 5NN #S AB#E sends Callsign 5NN Serial AB (Aberdeen)
and takes you to the Serial Received field (#E is a simulated Enter).

With AutoCW enabled (toggled with apostrophe at any time), the Enter
key sends the appropriate CW message while calling CQ or running -
no need to press F1 F2 or F3.

After the contest, use SDCHECK (Option 1) to create your Cabrillo
format .LOG file.  Send it as an attached file to
2128cw.logs at rsgbhfcc.org
