If you think about it, 1500 watts is not really all that much power in the world
of short wave radio. Folks who are serious about short wave (like the VOA and
other foreign braodcasters) run 50,000 watts and up as well as high gain
antennas to increase their signal even more. 

Compared to the big boys, 1500 watts is QRP.  :-)

Don't get me wrong - I do not advocate illegal power. 1500 watts is plenty for
