   UK Entrants - select the "RSGB 1.8, UK" template.
   All others  - select the "RSGB 1.8, DX" template.

UK entrants work everyone.  All others work UK only.
Exchange Serials.

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

When logging UK stations, enter 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 (.LST) with district codes.  For example -

Use SDCHECK create your Cabrillo .LOG file.
