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
