Perhaps it is time for a new forum: QRO-the world of 5 watts and above. Where TIME and EASE of doing so is the main priority of those wishing to collect all available wallpaper and DX entities.
My idea for a new forum would be for those of us who are more interested in working QRPers than running QRP! I get a big kick out of working QRP stations!
If you visit the QRP ARCI's award page that their DXing Awards they cleverly avoid the need for 80M DX contacts--folks are getting their 7Band WAC certificates by working all the higher HF bands, 40M through 10M. It is quite the bummer to have your application returned because the award isn't offered!
In talking with my wife this morning, I realized that my perspective is different from most hams --I've had a stroke with severe ataxia, so I consider it to be quite the accomplishment to be able to do CW again, just as well as I did it before the stroke, after many years of slow but steady rehab. A big mistake made by many older adults in rehab is being too proud to do the very basics--it is actually true that you need to walk before you can run--I had to learn how to walk as well. Back when I had the stroke, many people mistakenly believed that you only had about 6 months to regain what you lost--after than you could expect little, if any, improvement.
