I was curiously seeking info on a new repeater and came across many sites, and 
and one in choosing the best overall system for the cost. What would it be.....

Let's say in choosing equipment everything is fairly close in camparison.
50 Watts (100 % duty cycle)
Let's not disucss options...especially right now?
145 feet of 1/2" coax line...(Minimum loss)
the question is?

Would you consider an amplifier pushing out 100 Watts at 100 % duty cycle over 
a 4 bay dipole antenna (8 dbd gain)


Would you consider 50 watts over a 8 bay dipole antenna (11 dbd gain)

overall the area within an 60 mile radius is faily flat.

All suggestions are welcome
