Bob, They are already doing this.
They had a box connected to each radio that would indicate to the
referee that you were running more than 100 watts. I would assume they
would just then ask the competitor to turn their power down if it
indicated over 100 watts. I believe they had a similar device in WRTC
2008 in Boston as well.
