WT 4.13.0 WT 4.13.0-WRTC

Log the following

OA4O RCP ZP5AA RCP KK1Z R2 K0QB R2

This should count as three multipliers. Win-test counts it as only two.

There about nine others like this, including:

ER7HQ ARM XX9A ARM

Suggested fix: if the exchange column is all letters, append country prefix to exchange before storing in memory, e.g.:

RCP-OA RCP-ZP

XX9-ARM ER-ARM

I don't know if it will really be an issue this weekend.

Suggested fix won't work. Like R1, R2, R3, the "AC" (Administrative Council) multiplier must only be counted once, regardless of country location.

Yep :-( Exception + Exception + Exception = Ugly code, but I'm afraid there will be no other solution. In all cases, I won't patch the current 4.13 for the coming contest / WRTC.
