The RDA Contest takes place from 14:00 UTC on Saturday
18th to 07:59 UTC on Sunday 19th August.  There are CW,
SSB and Mixed-Mode sections, for both HP and LP, on the
6 contest bands from 10-160m. 

Rules at http://rdaward.org/rdac1.htm

SD supports SO entries in RDAC. V13.27 runs on any Windows
PC and is free from www.ei5di.com/sd/sdsetup.exe.
  Russian Entrants - select SD's "RDA, Russia" template
  Others           - select SD's "RDA, DX" template.

Work Russians only, if you're outside Russia. SD displays
inappropriate callsigns or prefixes in red.  If they're
not red, they're OK to work for points.

Russians:  Send RST + 4-character district code.
Others  :  Sent RST + Serial.

SD adds new district codes automatically to the RDA
district code reference file as they are logged. It
also loads RDA.LST at startup.  This is a callsign
database with some 17000 Russian callsigns extracted
from previous RDA logs.  SD then auto-fills the
4-character district code on a callsign match.

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo .LOG file.
Email it, as an attached file, to rx3rc at rdaward.org.

Please mention SD in your Cabrillo soapbox comments.
