The CQWW SSB contest takes place from 0000 UTC on Saturday 29th October

Rules at http://www.cqww.com/2005rules.pdf
SD supports this contest. V12.05 (with the latest country files) runs
on any Windows PC and is free from www.ei5di.com/sd/sdsetup.exe.
Select the "CQ WW" template.
Enter Mode as SSB.
Work everyone. Send & receive 59 + CQ Zone
If you prefer to log stations from the callsign field, use the L
(Log on Enter) command - you'll see L under the callsign field.
That way, you can let SD insert the zone automatically, and not
bother about checking it. You won't lose points for a "wrong"
zone because, for log checking purposes, the organisers discard
the RST and Zone you actually logged - and rescore each log against
their own callsign/zone/country/continent database.
After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo format .LOG
file. Send it as an attached file to ssb(at)cqww(dot)com.
