The power levels are a bit confusing.  The WA7BNM Contest Calendar at 
http://www.hornucopia.com/ says QRP is 5W, and HP IS 100W.  However, the 
rules web page, in English at 
says for the SOAB category , "... the output power should not exceed the 
resolved power according to the radio amateur license of the participant". 
Not sure what "...resolved power..." means, but it sounds like you can run 
up to the maximum power allowed by your license.  The are many other SO 
categories, but none except SOQRP (<= 5W) mention the power level at all.

If running QRP you must affix /QRP at the end of your call.  There are many 
categories of operation in this so be sure to check the rules out ahead of
