Thanks, Alan.  I'm still learning alot about how the computerized log 
checkers do things.  I think I may put a note on the NCCC reflector and 
make sure I'm doing it right.  I suspect it's ok, but I don't want to 
send in the log and have a bunch of Qs thrown out.  I'm obviously not 
the only one using TR, I just thought I had somehow got the wrong .dom

All others use California counties for a maximum of 58. CA stations on a county line may be claimed as a multiplier for any or all of the counties they give in their exchange.  Number each multiplier as worked...."
