    I see Chinese manufacturers are selling 25 watt dual band transceivers. This sounds dangerous. Is this a potential brain cooker? Forgot to mention here handheld transceivers.

    The 25W figure advertised is most often an input value or even a battery rating (VA) ... It must do a lot to improve sales to folks that don't look at the details, or so I'd imagine.

    This has been brought up many times before.

    It is the battery rating, The most that it will do is warm your hands.

    The radios are fan cooled that suggests higher output.

    Exchange rate on the Yuan is running 6 to one with Dollar.
    25 Watts Chinese = around 4 watts Stateside

    I have a Leixen uhf 25 watt. I think these actually put out 18 watts. I use a remote mic and hold the radio as high above my head as I can. Sometimes hold the radio above the car top if I’m sitting inside the car. Takin no chances. I still need my eyes and all brain cells.

    I wonder how many of those watts are at the fundamental, vs. the higher harmonics?
