Wow, wonder if Amateurs could get 4 to 10 times increase also.  4 times 
INCREASE would be 7500 and 10 would be 16500 watts.  Brings a whole new 
definition of the coax necessary and the safe distance from the antenna.  I 
wonder what their safe limit is now or would be with this.

Gives credance to the interference issues though.

Crazy, 73, de Jim KG0KP
