The precedence is your contest entry class, not your classification of the 
moment.  If you make one QSO using 'B' power, then you must send 'B' until 
the end of the contest.

Now what about the other way?  You start out as 'A' and find you're not 
cutting it, so you throw on the amp and start to have fun. You should 
change from 'A' to 'B' but you can not go back.
