You appear not to have read the link. It's VERY cool to have made 
contact with a QRP radio floating on a research raft out in the Pacific, 
which, by the way, took a LOT of very good engineering to set up so that 
it kept working over a journey of thousands of miles. Setting it up is 
FAR more in the true spirit of ham radio than any contest I've ever 

The CQ Field award is about making a QSO with stations spread over every 
part of the earth. It has NOTHING to do with how that station is 
operated, and everything to do with how WE operate our station to make 
the contact.

See above.

Not a contest QSO.
