I agree the real fun of QRP is making the hard contact. Frankly find rag chewing rather unninteresting since Hams usually want to talk about their rigs or give you info already on QRZ. To me the fun is a brief contact at the limits of my rigs ability. Made a QRP ( 7 watts ) from NY to Alabama SSB. Lasted maybe a minute or two but was thrilled. The hobby should have room for us all.
