The CQWW SSB contest takes place from 0000 UTC on Saturday 29th October
to 2359 on Sunday 30th October.  It's an SSB-only event on the 6 contest
bands from 160 to 10m.

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.  

SD Setup:
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.
