The RSGB 1.8 MHz Contest takes place from 2100 UTC Saturday
9th February to 0059 UTC Sunday 10th February. It is CW-only
on 160m.

Rules: http://www.contesting.co.uk/hfcc/rules/2008/r18mhz.shtml

SD supports this event.  V13.36 is free from www.ei5di.com

In the two events in 2007, the winners of both the UK and the
Overseas sections used SD.

   UK Entrants - select SD's "RSGB 1.8, UK" template.
   All others  - select SD's "RSGB 1.8, DX" template.

UK entrants work everyone.  All others work UK only.
Exchange 5NN + Serial.

UK stations add their 2-character district code, and should
edit SD's F2 exchange message (using Shift-F2) to include it.

When logging other UK stations, you may type the serial and
district in a single field.  For example: 26WA, followed
by Enter, is expanded to 026  WA in their respective fields.

SD pre-fills the district code when you load a callsign
reference file with district codes.  For example -

Use SDCHECK create your Cabrillo .LOG file.

   Contest Name    : RSGB-160
   Log Serial Sent : Y
   District Code   : UK - Enter your 2-character code as sent.
                   : Non-UK - leave blank
   Log Serial Rcvd : Y

Rename the Cabrillo file to YOURCALL.LOG and email it, as an
attached file, to 1st160.logs at rsgbhfcc.org

Please mention SD in your soapbox comments.
