Any chance SDC can be used as everyday  Log program? With Contest module available I do not see why not and it seems like a lot of potential for a Flex Radio to use with dual receivers. Thanks

The SDC-Contest subsystem has a profile with the name DXLOG, which can be used for conventional QSO.
Now I am working on the content of Contest Rules. After that I will add the service to the DXLOG profile.

Andy, you need to select the DXLOG profile in combobox "Contest profile". It is in the "UNKNOWN" month.

wait, are you using DXLog as an everyday log or do i miss something?
If Yes, I cannot find an option in DXLog to import ADIF files (my log from another log that I use on daily basis).
Thanks

Out of curiosity, I tested importing Cabrillo and experienced most often issues during load. Complete SDC crashes, or dates that were not the original date, or data not properly inserted in the fields (when using different contest profiles). Cabrillo requirements seem to depend on the specific contest and with DXLog as profile I was not able to get anything loaded from sample cabrillo files. 
For DXLog I was extracting parts of my log in DXKeeper with mode CW and selected in DXKeeper one the format for CQ WW CW. 
With Cabrillo logs from old contests it worked often loading into this specific SDC Contest format, but as mentioned in the best case with some date issues in the log in SDC. 
It would then also be nice to be able to recalculate the contest to get some of the calculated fields populated. Nice to have would be to get an ADIF import with recalculation feature.

Andy, the DXlog is the top log under contest profiles.  Just look under unknown

I personally don't know why anyone would want to use this when there are so many great everyday logging programs out there.

SDC was not designed for that so it does not really have the required features like checking cluster feed against needed DXCC, etc.
