That's a good idea. I was worried about space issues in the score
window, but when we use a notebook there is no problem at all!

Okay, maybe it's okay to include 50 MHz, but who will want to work 100
countries in 2 meters anyway... :-)
It would be better to add grid square statistics per band, so we should
add a list dedicated to VHF/UHF qso's.

Have to think about this. There will be a configuration dialog for the
score window, so we don't really have to use the option menu strings.

I might want to start out with a simple score window and go from there.
We can always add features with future releases.

Thanks for the hint. I will take a look at it.
