Well its the consensus amongst most QRP operators who believe that using QRP is adequate to do the job on any mode or band.
Where do you get that? It is certainly usable on any band, any mode, but "adequate"? Define "adequate". To me, that would be "adequate for my enjoyment", and QRP suffices at present. If one defines "adequate" as "adequate for reliable communications under all conditions", I know of no one who would say QRP operation meets that definition.
It also comes about with the arrogant assumption that the 5 watt legal QRP limit is something that should be carved into rock because the contest committee decided that that was the legal limit for a contest.
Once again, you have proven your ignorance. The "generally accepted" definition of what constitutes "QRP" is 5 Watts - that is promulgated by QRPARCI and most QRP operators. Most contests do adhere to that definition, yes, but they do not define what QRP is for anyone but themselves. I will add that the stated purpose of this
forum on eHam is to discuss operations at 5 Watts or less. Which tends to make most of your posts off-topic here.
I am more interested in what the practical lower power limit is for reliable communications.
That is *you*. That is not the generally accepted QRP power definition. Nor is it the stated purpose of this forum. As NU4B states, you're welcome to do what you want...but that doesn't make your comments valid here, as it is not a discussion of operations at 5 Watts and below.
Why you can't comprehend that, I don't know! Unless you're just an unlicensed troll. Wait...that seems to be the case!
I know many here have asked your callsign, yet you silently ignore these requests - why? Why should we presume you even have a license if you won't tell us who you are? Why should anyone grant your comments any credibility at all?
There are better ways of doing QRP that is still within the spirit of the QRP philosophy without depending on silly contest rules
OK, I get it. You don't like contests. Again, wrong forum.
