[NA-User] Template Editor & setting QSO points

There is no setting in the COUNT POINTS BY field that will accomplish this 
directly.  This would require the addition of some code to NA which would 
be no big deal, but then participants would have to have the new version.

One possible workaround is to choose the selection for CW = 2 and SSB = 1, 
then set the power multipliers (QRP, low, high) to 2, which would 
accomplish the same thing.  If the contest DOES have power multipliers, 
then these could just be doubled.

Participants will never know the difference.  The QSO points shown on the 
screen have the power multipliers included.
