While, yes, you are correct and anyone can run QRP, there's a bit of a
difference when *everyone* is running QRP and just you are running QRP. :)

I always try to yield to QRP and Portable stations. <shameless_plug> As
I follow the "The Courteous Ham's Guide to AO-51" available at
http://is.gd/37Ca </shameless_plug>, however not everyone does. It's a
lot easier to work a satellite at 5W or less when everyone else is also
only running 5W or less, not that it's impossible to work it when
everyone is pumping out enough RF to roast a chicken.

It would be interesting to encourage people who may not realize how easy
it is to run QRP into satellites to give it a try.
