Joe:

I too have noted the great "ears" possessed by so many of the AK and JA
operators. Have sometimes been astounded to work them when all around
them are other louder guys calling endless CQ's. So I have bravely
simply gone back and gotten a QSO a surprising number of times!

Plus, I have never received a negative comment from a single one of
them upon learning about QRP on my end. Indeed, they are often very
intrigued and will sometimes slow down to learn more about my setup,
especially antennas.

Seems they still celebrate the "amateur" (= "for the love of it") and
adventure aspects of ham radio.
