The Russian DX Contest (RDXC) takes place from 12:00
Saturday 17th March to 11:59 UTC Sunday 18th March.

There are CW, SSB and Mixed options on the 6 contest
bands from 160-10m, with HP, LP (100w) and QRP (5w)

Single band entries are Mixed only.

Rules at http://www.rdxc.org/asp/pages/rulesg.asp

SD V15.59 supports RDXC - www.ei5di.com.

    Select the "RDXC" template.

SD asks for your starting mode - if Mixed, you can
change mode at any time.

Work everyone.
Russians send 2-character oblast code.
Others send a Serial.

SD pre-fills all Russian oblast codes.  Mults are
oblasts and countries, by band.

<Soapbox>  If oblasts, like countries, can be
identified directly from the callsign, what's the
point of exchanging them?  Why can't the Russians
send a serial - like everyone else? </Soapbox>

Use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo log, and upload
it at http://www.rdxc.org/asp/pages/wwwlog.asp

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