100W vs. 250W of output power, will anyone ever notice the difference?

    A 20 dB increase? You must have asked for a signal report at 03:00z from an American on 75 meters. :)

    No it was local ham, about 5 km away.

    Still would not account for a valid 20db increase. Perhaps your receiver was in a front end overload condition from the strong local signal? Most ham receivers are poor at measuring accurate RF voltage input over a wide range.

    Lies, damn lies, statistics, and S meters.
