Good point & one thing I didn't mention - using r1, r2 & r3 for domestic
mults will throw spanner into the works with some Russian calls, but
since MVI & FJL are not that common in the ARRL 10m, this "problem" has
yet to surface.

Likewise, MMs will eventually clash with new calls in Scotland, but it'll
be a while yet before they get past MM0...

So while it isn't perfect, it's certainly workable.  I'd guess that few
ever work any /MMs anyway, so a "proper" fix wouldn't be the effort.

I don't think it worked correctly for LU6ETB as he doesn't have any
lower-case characters in his ARRL10.DOM file for these three mults.
