QRP is like bowhunting, QRO is hunting with a high power rifle.
I disagree: QRP is like hunting with a toothpick while QRO is like hunting with a 0.50" machine gun. Firing the machine gun is a fantastic experience.
You illustrate my point exactly about different temperaments being suited to QRP and QRO.
You would be happy in the military being behind a machine gun, while my preferred position would be as a sniper.
It all is a matter of personality, patience and your outlook on life.
These personal factors decide our radio operating choices as much as any other decisions we make.
We are all made differently, and that is why we have different operating interests and styles.
None are better or worse - just different.
Dogs and cats are both hunting animals - but they hunt different things and with different styles.
We don't expect a cat to run down a fox, or dogs to stealthily sit and hunt mice.
So it is with QRP and QRO.
I leave it to your imagination whether QRO guys are like dogs or cats, but I think the answer is self evident.
Who barks the loudest, with a louder bark being a better dog?
