Thanks George for the reminder. When I did a lot of re-writing of .DOM files to 
emulate a geographic map, I ran into that problem. I had originally done it for 
SS, which because it is strictly domestic does not call a .CTY file, works just 
fine with all caps. Recalling that success, I tried to do an all cap one for 
ARRL 160 which does call a .CTY file. It definitely didn't work.

Take a look at FCONTEST.PAS to see which contests are domestic only. However, 
to avoid confusion, it is probably best to follow the mixed caps/lower case 
guidelines referenced in the manual. Basically, you need to have at least one 
lower case letter in all mult IDs in the .DOM files in order for the display 
and counter to work properly; just like George said.
