I verified the same behavior.  Here is how the sections you mention are
listed in the .DAT file:

DE:         DE, DL;      3
EPA:        EP;          3
MDC:        MD, DC;      3
WPA:        WP;          3

They have been like this for some time.  It's possible K1EA changed the
program to require an exact match on the section names.  Previously he may
have only required a match where the section listed in the .DAT file
occurred at the beginning of the section you type in, i.e. DE, DEL and
DELAWARE are all acceptable because DE is listed in the file.

Of course I could be wrong...  I'd hate to have to update all the .DAT
files to list ALL possible section names.  Whatsa Ken?
