Remarks by EI5DI: SD is now free to everyone, and it runs on any Windows PC, but not on DOS. Your link to SD by EI5DI for DOS should be removed, and the URL for SD by EI5DI for Windows is now http://www.ei5di.com/sd/sdsetup.exe. Key files are no longer needed. I now have templates for most contests. To setup SD for your contest, simply select the "LZ DX" template at startup. Many thanks & 73, Paul EI5DI
