Your on the right track already!
Power your radio from battey and use 5 watts, that's the legal part as far as I know!
Keep your antenna's simple, vertical, inverted VEE, G5rv junior, inverted L all seem to work well. We have tried several through the years and some play better than others.
The idea of having one for close range like a NVIS is good but any the above work well.
Logging can be done on paper, but a computer with logging software sorts out the dupes!
Scott N3JFP sells a great field day logging program, no vested intrest, just a satisfied customer.
I'm not sure the ARRL cares about the power for your computer, but I may stand corrected.
If they do, run it from battery also?
You are correct on telling them your are QRP, some QRO operators go deaf if you do!
Just go set up fight the bugs and have fun!!
Don't forget to bring food, that's the best part!
