Every week I check into a vintage military radio net in which most 
stations are transmitting about 10 W.  In the last session of this 
net, propagation was very poor, QRN from thunderstorms was high, and 
one of the stations was 5000 km away in England, so I used a power 
amp and was transmitting 1 kW.  The other stations, of whom all but 
one were located in the blacked-out area, noting that my signal was 
20 dB stronger than usual, blamed me for the NE Power Failure.
