I worked a couple who kept sending only "QRP QRP QRP" every time I'd
send TU.  They were a couple of UT's who apparently wanted to get in
the YN2WW log.  I think they were the only ones who ID'ed with QRP and
I know I worked a dozen known QRPers who never signed /QRP .... most
all of them know better!
