Competition is good.
CQ WPX CW expanded RadioSport categories to include USA Low Power, World QRP/p, and World rookie beginning in 2008 and onward into our future. According to CQ-Contest Digest Volume 73, Issue 3 wherein Randy, K5ZD stated, "We had a number of outstanding efforts from the 2008 contest that were not going to receive the recognition they deserved."
Who is going to be the first world rookie or garner USA Low Power? Likewise who has taken on the mammoth task of CQ WPX CW at the extreme end of power, QRP/p?
