Hi Ted,
Thanks for doing this !!! I hadn't read the rules so  wasn't even aware of 
this change.
I just got around to testing the file. I entered a  few calls (K, VE, and 
VE).  Seems fine.
If you can find out which XE call area each state  is in, you can enhance 
the file so that NA plugs the mult name in for  you (like "ON" for VE3, etc). 
Otherwise, it's easy enough to type it in for  each log entry.
For example:
Ontario:          ON:   VE:    

For XE stations, I think you'd simply have to add  the 1, 2, 3, or 4 to 
your prefix list. 
(i.e :    

(I don't think they use five thru  zero)
Later,  Joe

I am  trying to update the NA ARRL10.MLT multiplier file to correctly
reflect  this year's ARRL Ten Meter Contest Rules change adding the 32
Mexican  States as valid multipliers.

For those of you who know your way around  the NA .MLT file format, would
you please take a look at my current draft  at:

I am  specifically interested in proper handling of the active
Mexican prefixes  shown in the far right hand data column of
the last 32 lines of this draft  file.

Any feedback or suggestions would be most  appreciated.
Thanks/73   Ted W8KVK  Athens,  OH
