Thanks for catching that. I noticed the county was designated as "multiple" or "various" but didn't stop to assign a different template at the time. Since you reminded me of it, I looked at all of the articles that use either the multi-county or the multi-state templates, and have made some adjustments to the test-template so that when I update the other templates, they will simply invoke the main TRS template but with custom values. That way the look-and-feel will be consistent no matter which template is assigned to a particular article.

I understand and agree; but so far, I have only seen a few articles that have a good-handful of callsigns, which in this new format seems like it would only be two rows. So, hopefully, it won't be a problem. But, I will definitely monitor that in case something gets too long and needs some spacing-adjustment or something.

Yeah, single-line would have been ideal, but this seems to work.

Thanks for the time it took to review everything and for the comments.

I will still be in test-mode for a while, working through the articles to make sure nothing gets messed-up by the updates to the test-template. I will post here again when things get finished up, and at any major points along the way as needed.

Thanks again,
