I hope you are wrong Tom.  One of my FT1000MP's will put out 110w and the 
other will only do 90w.  You can bet the 110w unit will be scaled back to 

That's like entering the QRP class in SS and running 10w instead of 5w.  
If you (not you K5RC) need a fancy piece of paper or wood that bad... let 
me know.  I'll buy you one that says whatever you want it to say.
