When TR processes the QSOs going off the top of the editale log window,
it looks at the multiplier to figure out what it is.  If you had entered
"BUX" manually, it would find that the mult is Bucks and process it that
way.  When it finds "Bucks" for the mult, it doesn't know what multiplier
that is.  This can be fixed by changing the entry for Bucks as shown:

Bucks = BUX, BUC.  

Probably the other cases that don't work can be fixed the same way.
