I have an affinity for QRP. Maybe because my formative years overlapped with The Five-Watt QRP Movement. Idunno. But when I got my ticket in 1987 I put a wanted ad out for an Argonaut and got hold of a 505 with matching 50W (output) linear amplifier. I currently have four of them.

There's a considerable overlap between QRP and homebrewing. Sure, many QRPers have commercial QRP equipment and many homebrew projects are not QRP, but still, homebrew and QRP do go together.
