If I understand your question. . . Prior to the game, I print to paper
the appropriate Multiplier database file for the game, tape it to the
front of my packet monitor nearby at eye level and refer to it as needed.
The list shows most (if not all) of the various abbreviations for each
Multiplier section. Depending on the software, I think the (domestic)
file names are as follows:
TR = ARRL.DOM
NA = SECTIONS.MLT
CT = SEC.DAT
Should any of these file names be inaccurate, informing me of any
corrections will be appreciated. Regarding the ARRL 10-m game
specifically, I believe these same files are appropriate (along with
another file for DX Mults). I hope this helps. GL and have FUN!

> a. The SS rules in the October QST? No, but he will find out
> b. The General Rules in November QST? Nope.
> c. The General Rules for below 30 MHz? No.

> e. None of the above.
