The RSGB SSB Club Sprint takes this evening, Wednesday
21st October, from 2000 - 2130 Local Time (BST) on 80m,
3.600-3.650, and 3.770- 3.775 MHz.

There are QRP (10w) and LP (100w) sections.  HP is not

Rules at www.vhfcc.org/hfcc/rules/2009/rsprint.shtml.

Check the format of the "Example SSB QSOs" at

If you use any other QSO format, you are likely to
confuse potential callers.

SD V14.29 is free from www.ei5di.com

  Select the "RSGB 80m Sprint" template.

Enter Mode as SSB, and your Name for the exchange.
Set the band to 80m if you're not using rig control,
with the 80M or B80 commands.

Work everyone.  Exchange Serial + Name. 

You may find it easier to log the serial and name
as a single field.  For example, SD expands "4FRED"
to "004 FRED" when you press Enter.

After any QSO where you called CQ or QRZ, you must
QSY at least 2 kHz before your next QSO.  SD shows
your frequency offset - to let you know how far
you still have to QSY.

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo log, and post it
on-line at www.rsgbcc.org/cgi-bin/hfenter.pl

Please mention SD in your Cabrillo soapbox comments,
as this encourages others to try it
