I believe TR can work as it exists today in this contest - you would need to add
the Mexican states to the .DOM file and tell TR that XE is now a domestic country.

There might be an issue with too many domestic QTHs (I forget what the limit is, 
but it might be 255 for the Texas counties).  

At any rate - I will likely update the program for this contest at some point, 
but it will be based on 6.93 which not eveyrone is happy with.  It might also be
that some of the new additions will require changes to the existing names, but
I haven't checked for sure.
