Re:callsign / QRP - 2013/12/03 19:27 Hello all,

Better late than never, but I just read into the FAQ of NAQCC = North American Qrp Cw Club a very interesting information concerning the "/QRP"

Here it is:

Suggestion On The Use Of /QRP:
The use of /QRP after one's call is something of a controversial matter among contesters and DXers. Personally I (K3WWP) NEVER use /QRP after my call for several reasons. When DXing or contesting, the added letters are a burden to send and/or copy, taking up valuable time in situations where every split second counts. Also I know for a fact that /QRP is used fraudulently in big DX pileups by a few QRO stations to try to get attention and/or sympathy from the DX station. As a result, gradually many DXpedition and contest stations are getting to the point where they will not respond to those using /QRP after their calls. Still another reason is not all computer logging and contesting programs will handle /QRP calls correctly.

Continuing on, many folks are using LOTW and eQSL for their QSLs these days, and submitting a call to them as /QRP will more than likely never give a correct match and a QSL. Beyond contesting and DXing, I find that signal reports will tend to be more honest if the station doesn't know at first that you are operating QRP.

Many will alter their reports, making them either higher or lower than they should be if they know you are a QRP station. The time to let them know is after the first full exchange of info.

Now after saying all that, please feel free to continue using /QRP if you wish. It's not a club rule one way or the other. However in the long run, if you intend to become a better CW operator, we suggest you'll find you're much better off dropping the practice especially if your long term goal is to become a top-notch QRP contester or QRP DXer.

Voilą,
