I certainly sympathize with your predicament, but there's no easy way to "fix" the data in the way you suggest.
The DO is both its own field and has referential meaning in the Frequency Record ID (for when the DO is not necessarily the correct region), but I don't think the downloadable text files include either value - they're in the online searchable version only.
