I remember around 1990 when my son VP2EXX won some contest with QRP and the "regulars" had a fit and called him a liar. I knew the station and what it was capable of. (It was mine!) I ran JA pileups with nothing more than a flicker on the wattmeter. Great location. People don't like being outgunned by a 16-year old who stays up 48 hours continuous on the radio in a contest. Did he bump the power up behind my back? I don't think so since that was not his style. He didn't need to!
