So, would it be legal to "borrow" a superstation, operate QRP, and get 
honorable mention?  I know it would be next to impossible to beat 
stations running 1.5 KW or more with a puny 5 watts, but I've wondered 
how a super station antenna array would stack up while running QRP?

I'd like to see if the Michigan QRP Club's mottoe "Wits over Watts" is 
actualy true.  Of course, "Wits" isn't my forté. :)
