The ARRL Sweepstakes takes place from 12:00 UTC Saturday
2nd to 02:59 UTC Monday 4th November. It is CW-only on
the six contest bands from 10-160m. SS is open to W/VE
entrants (and territories & possessions) only.
Rules at http://www.arrl.org/sweepstakes
Please use SD V17.19 - earlier versions do not calculate
operating time. SD is free from http://www.ei5di.com.
Use the "ARRL SS CW" template.
Enter your exchange, minus your own callsign and with
exchange elements separated by a space, on SD's opening
screen. This is used by SDCHECK to format your Cabrillo
Once again, do not include your callsign in this field.
It's not needed in Cabrillo.
When logging received exchanges, there's no need to
leave spaces between exchange elements - it's faster
this way. Do not log the other station's callsign
in the exchange field - SD doesn't need it because
it's already in the callsign field.
After the contest, use SDCHECK to create your Cabrillo
.LOG file, and send it to sscw at arrl dot org.
Please mention SD in your Cabrillo soapbox comments.
