I tend to agree with all your points Paul, specially in these days where 
we need to save time! If we logged everything as sent we would lose a 
lot of points. If someone sends TT1 do we log it as TT1?  What about 
Zone 9 in CQWW - ENNN - ? or in recent years, zone 34 sent as ENN3V. In 
the FOC Marathon I always send my number as A4A7.

What about on SSB and a US station signs Portable 5? I have actually 
seen contest logs where that was entered as /P5 and the multiplier for 
North Korea claimed!!

The /QRP point though is whether the station submits an entry. If he/she 
doesn't then either the checking s/w or the final adjudicator can decide 
on a majority basis. If the station does submit an entry my guess would 
be that they would declare the true licence callsign, ie without the 
/QRP. That is another reason why I would not log it.

ps - Had to smile this morning, listening to an RW9 on 15m in the 
Gagarin Contest, presumably. Unanswered CQs, his callsign sent 3 times 
each CQ, yet Test speeded up!! Ah, of course, to save time!! (Erm, for
