Thanks again for the help. I've played around some more and think what is
happening is beyond the configuration of the .DOM file. The mults are
displayed correctly when entered, but get changed as they scroll off the
edit window and are placed into the LOG.DAT file. Apparently, they are
treated differently at this point for some reason.

Actually, I think the best choice for the DX mult is DX MULTIPLIER = NONE
and I include Dx = DX in the .DOM file as only ONE DX mult is allowed,
regardless how many countries you work. You just have to type in DX as the
exchange, not let the callsign do it.

A friend and I are looking into operating portable in PA for the contest, so
I'm trying to get this set up. If we don't, I'll be on from home and the
.DOM file is simpler!!

Thanks again and 73,
