First: signing /QRP should be grounds for a DQ, as far as I'm concerned.

It's not a legitimate part of your callsign and if you think I'm going to 
waste another nanosecond working you after you've screwed me around trying 
to copy a weak /QRP, you got another thing coming. I give people the benefit 
of doubt, so if I hear a <callsign>/garble, I'm going to assume there's 
actually something I need to know after the /.

I salute QRP ops. I admire the tenacity. But please, send your call. ONLY 
your call.

Second: I thought the fun of QRP was the challenge of doing it WITHOUT 
special consideration, such as a QRP zone or the silly /QRP thing.

This is NOT a slag against QRP ops. Merely an expectation that everybody 
operate properly despite their power level.

Hi Pete,

Is /qrp allowed in your country?

Anyway, running a station qrp at a good location with big antennas,
it will  be still stronger then one with dipoles or a vertical and 100W.
I don´t see the point of extra points for that.
And beware of stations sending /qrp, which is nonsense

At the risk of being accused of excessive irony, I suggest that anyone who
logs a QRP station in a contest should get double QSO points for the extra
effort involved, and if the QRP station sends /QRP,the other station should
get 4X points as a PITA bonus.
