But remember the ICAS means that, and modes such as RTTY and SSTV tend not to
fit too well into such ratings. Even contesting if you have a lot of speech
processing can be a problem; a fan blowing on the transformer will often help a
lot if you are pushing things. If not, as Jeff says, you can push things quite a
way. I have an xfmr with a military rating of 275mA DC continuous into a bridge
with a choke input filter; I've had no problem, even when contesting, pushing it
to 700mA on speech peaks with a tuned choke input.
