Depends on the contest and the entry category. The rules of many 
contests only talk about transmitter output power, regardless of how it 
is achieved, but the NAQP has a rule that deals specifically with 
amplifiers: "6. ... Use of external amplifiers capable of more than 100 
W output is not allowed."
