For almost 50 years I have worked with high power RF.  I have felt the hair 
on my neck move from a multi-megawatt HRI Radar antennas.  For over a year I 
played cards every day next to a 10 KW tropo klystron.  I have slept next to 
a 50 KW broadcast transmitter more nights than I can count.  I have seen 
people climb broadcast towers hot to change the lights. But, I have never 
seen or heard of anyone having health issues from these RF exposures.

If you are losing sleep over a 1 kw RF exposure from amateur transmitters, I 
fear you need go QRP and get some sleep.
