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.
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.
