Let me throw something else out here.....
First, I agree with not using /qrp when calling a station..... nothing but a
time waster IMHO. Same holds true for DX pileups!
But... when I would be running stations I would add /qrp once in a while.
Why? Well, here is what my little mind kept telling me.... (and that
doesn't make it right!)....
Say someone is running a KW and they hear me just above the noise. If they
happen to hear the /qrp they should know that they should be louder than
that on my end and call me. Otherwise they might just think it's too poor a
path and move on.
The same thing with another qrp station hearing me.... if he knows I'm also
qrp then they will call but if they were to think I was qro they may well
just look for a loud station to call....
OK, back in my hole,
