Overall Tlf did better than propagation into CO from this location.

The WYSIWYG multiplier method was confused by the fact I was entering
two values in the exchange field--the other op's name and county.  If I
worked another station in the same county WYSIWYG counted it as a new

The other suspected issue was working the same station on a band/mode
but in a new county which the rules allow for point credit but Tlf
scored as 0 points.

Neither of these were show stoppers as both introduced errors into Tlf's
scoring of the event.

For the good side, I created an North American QSO Party Cabrillo
template (specified by the CO QP rules) that I will merge with the main
template file.  One bug did surface here since in the rules file the
CABRILLO-EXCHANGE parameter is taken as a single string and is not split
for Cabrillo output as the received exchange is.  The parameter is
apparently limited to 10 characters as a string any longer than that is
truncated even when the field in the Cabrillo template is specified to
be longer.

The CO QP rules state all fields should start at the same column number
as the NAQP template available online[1].  I did some manual adjustment
to line things up which I probably could have avoided if
CABRILLO-EXCHANGE did not truncate its input.

ADIF export appears to be fine although I've not uploaded it to LoTW or
eQSL yet.

Tlf still has a few rough edges that I think we can work out in the

My updated files are attached.
