There is one other not mentioned yet, that I have seen, reason for sending /qrp 
in a "normal" contest. And that is one intended for notifying the 
other op, that this is a qrp station,... of course... however, why? 
The answer that I use /qrp for, if the other op is aware that I am qrp, then 
just maybe he will save us both a significant amount of time, and 
send his exchange to me just once... if qro is 6 to 9 db louder, the path is 
reciprical, and he hears me, then he should send once... and copy me .. ONCE.
If not... then I will fill. No Problem. If not fill again... if he asked. I 
have his exchange. ...
We both are well on the way to keeping the rates... and if he hasn't figured 
that out... repeating /qrp is truly a waste. putting /qrp in a cq or a run freq 
is an unproductive thing to do. That simply invites a freq takeover attempt. 
Usually that is unproductive for the other station... but happens. Many times 
it is much easier for me to move to the second freq I have been scouting, 
rather than fight... however, as many have found in Field day.... there are 
times I don't have time to fight... I am logging to quick to fuss about someone 
else... just simply use the filters.... it will go away. 
  C U in the next test.
