Here is a question that has been in my brain for more years than I can count, so I thought I would ask for opinions from other people. When I see a ham proclaiming they picked up a huge hunk of old iron from a defunct AM broadcast station I ask this question. Let's say the transmitter can run 3 KW after the conversion over to 75 meters, how many hams will run it at the maximum obtainable power limit. I realize there is no right or wrong answer, please just express your personal opinion of the percentage you believe would abuse the power rules. Same thing for the ham that buys a Henry 8K Ultra amp which will run a cool 5000 Watts all mode or 7000+ PEP day after day. What percentage of hams will rein this pony in to the legal limit or will they run it wide open to in sure they break through the tough pileups. The last portion of the question is this, what percentage of people would use this amps in a contest in the hopes that they will get the plaque and be top dog for that band?
