You'll find that Rhode Island is listed as "R" in the .DOM file. Thus,
anything starting with R will be credited as RI.

THIS particular issue is easily changed by editing the ASCII file so that RI
is RI or RH (why RH? That's what is used in the DOM file for other

By making this change, the program SHOULD accept R1 and R2, etc., as
separate DX mults.

No, I haven't tried it. I wasn't lucky enough to have this problem last
