        Very true!  I would argue that the station RECEIVING a QRP
exchange on 160 deserves more points than the one transmitting!  
Receiving ability is the most important part of 160 operation yet
a QRO station with excellent Beverages is relatively penalized for
a making a two-way contact that is more work for him than the QRP 
station.  W8JI even donated a plaque this year for the station 
working the most QRP'ers!
