Sd heeft vandaag een nieuwe update uitgebracht van zijn contestlogger.
SD sets the standard for fast, simple logging and editing in the major international contests and in dozens of others worldwide. It is intended for single-op unassisted entries, and runs on Windows, from Win95 to Win 10 , and on Linux/Wine – with a console-mode (text) interface.
SD supports rig control, serial and parallel keying – and integrates with WinKey to eliminate CW timing issues caused by Windows – the WKUSB kit is recommended. microHAM’s USB CW Keyer offers WinKey and level converters for rig control in a single package.
SD offers instant “full-screen” editing of any QSO in your log. All SD’s files, including the log, are ASCII and can be viewed with any text editor.
SD is the only contest logger to offer the following features, in real-time, as you type individual callsign characters. There’s no need to touch another key or memorise Ctrl-This or Alt-That.
- Dupe checking
- Country/Band analysis
- Check Partial by prefix
- Beam headings
- Advance flagging of potential multipliers
- Band/Mode analysis by callsign
- Linked database display
- Auto data insert (Zones and area codes)
- Countries Worked/Wanted by Continent
WAE CW – QTCs:
Restored all appropriate CW messages when sending or logging QTCs.
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 Power.
DUMP Command Updated:
This copies your log (.ALL) and audit files (.AUD) to another device, typically a USB portable disk or flash drive.
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 entrants.
The name of the most recent template used is stored in SD.INI.
Country Files .CTY:
Updated WAE.CTY, DXCC.CTY, CQWW.CTY.
