I am sorry if I offend anyone, but "*5W or less, ideally using HTs or
portable setups & handheld directional antennas or **whips/duckies*" is not
*experimental* al all. It is standard operating mode for a lot of people. I
hope we can up with something truly experimental.

Otherwise please call it "QRP, portable Wednesday" because that's what it
is. Nothing more.
