"The word in the regs is "necessary ", not "desired".    Bob"

Both terms are used in Part 97:

§97.313   Transmitter power standards.

(a) An amateur station must use the minimum transmitter power necessary to carry out the desired communications.

The problem is that "desired communications" is not defined!

If the operator desires to have a 40 dB over S-9 (with S-9 defined as a 50 microvolt signal level) at every location, then that operator can run more power, and still obey the rules, than an operator who just desires that their signal can barely be detected above the noise level.
