Using WSJT-X version 2.5.4, I have been using CQ QRP KD5XB DM84 to indicate
that I am running QRP.

When I change my callsign to KD5XB/QRP, the CQ that goes out is CQ
KD5XB/QRP and nothing more. Obviously that isn't the greatest solution.

When I change TX6 to say CQ KD5XB/QRP DM84 what actually goes out is CQ
KD5XB DM84 - so that doesn't work either.

So it appears that I will drop the QRP from my CQs. For what it's worth.

No definate answer, so far, from the replies. Some feel this indicates
they only want QRP while others feel this indicates they are running QRP.
Adding to the confusion, I've see CQ HI where, I beleive someone is
trying for Hawaii. So, to me, CQ QRP, following the same logic as the CQ
HI, one wants contact with someone using QRP. Perhaps, as mentioned in the
replies CA CallSign/QRP is a better indicator similar to CA Callsign/M
