Why not have a bit more publicity and transparency to allow a better 
judging of such scores? An internet-based score list can easily inform 
about the antenna system used (some  european VHF-contests i.e. list 
pwr, antennas and height asl). And why not publish the complete logs at 
least at the time of result´s publication? One can work DX even on 
80/160m with 5W. But that will happen only during those reasonable 
openings noticed by other participants, too. And QRP won´t allow real 
runs possibly  clearly seen in a public log. The  same for claimed qsos 
on the highbands with DX difficult even for HP-stations. With all 
claimed QSOs being public and comparable to all participants the value 
of such a  score  can be estimated much better - which is also in the 
interest of honest qrp-operators. Discussing distinct QSOs in the "peer 
group" would be an improvement over the gut feeling with its doubts.
Maybe I´m too small a contester to understand the problems some have 
with publishing logs - the ohhh so secret opening 2006 for sure won´t be 
there 2007 and any opening good enough to produce  a relevant amount of 
qsos isn´t secret by nature. But maybe the "real  contesters" know  the
