OH MY!!

I really thought the Pope's call would be HV1.

I wonder if he will  be a Qrper at 5 watts??

I hope so!!

I'd gladly make him a high gain wire antenna to use.

Yep! HV1/Qrp.

MERCY!!

Best regards to all with many 72....73.

To clarify what I meant, I mean that when calling CQ de W___/QRP on the CW QRP calling frequencies one should limit power to 5 watts. Of course it's fine for a higher power station to answer.

When I hear someone calling CQ CQ CQ DE W___/QRP I will generally answer even when he is very weak. When calling CQ and running QRP I get many more calls signing WX7G/QRP then when I sign WX7G.

To WX7G and all....

Yep! I do that also.....
I will call CQ on any mode and will always add the Qrp to the end of my call.

In fact if I'm using LSB/USB/FM/AM, I usually say this is WA2TPU A GREEN QRP STATION CALLING CQ.

Doing this has worked for me with great success over the years and I've been a Qrp station for decades now.

Best regards with many 72....73  to all,

There is no carved-in-stone answer. Many contests state that 5w, CW or phone, is the limit for QRP entries.

How about tacking on QRPP when running 1 watt ERP or less, QRP when running 1-5 watts, and LP (low power) when running 5-50 watts?  Note that I said ERP rather than transmitter output, since that includes antenna gain, or the lack thereof, if it can be calculated approximately.

A 100 watt rig into an indoor antenna inside a steel-and-concrete building certainly won't generate more than 10 watts ERP or thereabouts to the outside world.

Point of Order:
The Elecraft KX-1 runs 2-3 watts in stock build.  With the power modification it might squeak up to 5 watts.  Maybe.
