W H O C A R E S if you log /QRP or not? Entirely a personal thing.
The only time it might have the slightest relevance is during CQWW
Contest where the logging checker checks call signs against callsign,
where the /QRP might suggest a busted call or vice versa.
On a personal note, I only log the callsign - what power any other
person is running in 99.99999% of the time is of no interest to me.

I am fully aware that my youth has been spent
That my get up and go - has got up and went
But I really dont mind when I think with a grin
of all the great places my "get up" has been!
