This would appear to be a problem with the DOM file. I am running into these 
issues supporting the New England QSO Party. If you had logged him in Montcalm 
and Monroe you would have seen a similar result. What I think is happening is 
the long form of the multiplier is not recognized as the same mult it was 
entered as. I will change the DOM and send it do you to try out please.

A good test of a DOM file is if you can rerun the contest with your log (TR 
READ save_log.dat) and have the score and mults come out the same. What this 
requires is that the 'long version' of the multiplier be interpreted the same 
way as the official abbreviation. In Tom's example this does not happen.

STC becomes St Clair  (" St Clair = STC" in the DOM file)
STJ becomes St Joseph (" St Joseph = STJ" in the DOM file)

When the program sees "St" it resolves that to "St Clair" in every case. I 
personally don't like spaces in mult names. The DOM needs to be changed to 
StClair = STC
StJoseph = STJ.

In the case of Grand and Gratio, the DOM says:
Gratiot = GRA
Grand Traverse = GRT

The problem here is that GRA is always translated to Gratiot even when it 
comes from "Grand Traverse". What needs to happen here is to add GRAN to the 
Grand Traverse list and reverse the order the two are listed in the DOM.

Grand Traverse = GRT, GRAN
Gratiot = GRA.

A similar thing need to happen for Monroe and Montcalm.
