What happens with K1CC/KH6 who was sending a SN from HI,  I didn't try to
get him to change his exchange just worked him and logged what he sent.  He
doesn't show in the Log as a mult, but it turns out that was the only  KH6
mult I worked and it isn't shown,  Will the checkers program to pick him up
as the correct Mult.
