The endorsement checker looks for a <TX_PWR> value of 5 or less, and if it finds a PSK QSO like that, will show the QRP Endorsement as worked, and you can submit for it on the endorsement checker report.

Aaron -

The smart-aleck response is that the club needs certified test results traceable to NIST to ensure that you really were operating at no more than 5 watts output. But I wouldn't really say that unless you knew my sense of humor well enough.

The truth is that the club only requires you to send a description of your QRP setup, equivalent to the brag file you might send during a QSO. Kind of implicit in this is that you actually have made a QSO using this setup, though you don't need to send the details of any QSO. Note that QRP here does not necessarily mean a QRP radio (e.g., FT817, IC703, or SWL PSK series). You could be using a QRO radio as long as you adjust the transmit power down to no  more than 5 watts.
