V21.12  9 August 2019

   Restored all appropriate messages when sending or logging

SDCHECK - Cabrillo Logs:
   Your choices for club, power category, operator category
   etc. are now stored in SD.INI and are pre-filled when
   generating a new Cabrillo log.  This is more efficient
   because if, for example, you normally operate Low Power,
   the Cabrillo power category no longer defaults to High

DUMP Command Updated:
   This copies your log (.ALL) and audit files (.AUD) to
   another device, typically a USB portable disk or flash

   Updated to permit copies to the same device and folder
   in which SD is held (typically C:\SD), although external
   drives are recommended for obvious reasons.

   If your log is NAME.ALL, then the audit file is NAME.AUD.
   These are backed up (dumped) to NAME.ALB and NAME.AUB -
   overwriting earlier files of the same name.

   NA countries with prefix 4U1, 6Y & 8P were not identified
   as mults. Fixed, thanks W6RLL.

Alabama QSO Party:
   Updated (both sides) for 2019 rules.

District Code (.MLT) multiplier files:
   Valid district codes that do not qualify as multipliers
   may be included in the file, but with "=" replaced by "*".

   This applies in particular to the "Home" side of USA
   State QSO Parties where home entrants log county codes
   for same-state QSOs, and the state for out-of-state

Template File:
   The name of the most recent template used is stored in

Country Files .CTY:


You will need this version for logging QTCs in WAE CW.

When installing a new version of SD, take care to

and set other parameters described in GETTING STARTED
on page 3 of the manual SD.PDF.
