Without accusing anybody of anything !
I wondered why the FT1000 had 200 watts output when 100 is fine to drive
most any amplifier to 1500 watts out. Then I saw the ad for Alpha
that inferred using an Alpha on each of the antennas of a stack.
Of course this same ad had a FT1000 as an exciter.
So assuming a 2 stack on the band in question.
Gee, each Alpha fed with 100 watts (I'd say at least 2kw each)
Whom are we kidding here ?
