In amateur radio, QRP operation means transmitting at reduced power levels while aiming to maximize one's effective range while doing so. The term QRP derives from the standard Q code used in radio communications, where "QRP" and "QRP?" are used to request, "Reduce power," and ask "Should I reduce power?" respectively. The opposite of QRP is QRO, or high-power operation. ("WIKI")

You, Kidd would fall under the "QRO" definition! :lol:

Hey kidd, your monumental collection looks too damn sweet! Those first few pics punished me so severely
I went to bed without dinner...Do these amps draw a lot of current? What I should ask, hopefully not outta line,
does the Power Company reap a tidy monthly sum when one operates a shack such as yours full time?

I have a couple xmitters and no experience with linear amp type doodads. Do amps also offer positive results
when used in the particularly crowded urban areas?

I noticed some very cool radios in pony express' collection. Those "tri-wide" consoles were 1970s state of the art?
Very tasty gear gentleman,

Noel Grassy.
