I operate with 4 W on 80 m . It`s possible.
How do you know some do it? What did you do about it if you know they are doing it?
Somebody is getting away with something is so often a theme. It leaves a sour taste.
I don't know of ANY car (yet made) that can outrun a police helicopter.
There are plenty that actually could - on the salt flats or something. Helicopters of the type usually used anyway aren't that fast. But you're right in practice of course.
I had a cop once tell me the old Police Interceptors and such were a thing of the past simply because "they can't outrun the microphone."
Helicopter newscaster "we are kinda keeping up with him" "Thank God I have this lens doubler so we can keep an eye on him" "Honestly I have lost track of him"
"well we have lost him he simply is going too fast to keep up with him in our helicopter"
The POLICE Helio lost the car before the newscopter! Likely because the news bird has superior long range telephoto optics compared to any wider field of view optical devices that a law enforcement ship might happen to have on board.
However a radio signal isnt any faster at 2.5 kW than it is at 100w!
I know I am commenting on an old thread, but..
Only 2 grand to run 25K watts?
There is NO SUCH THING as an "illegal high power amp." it is USE by an individual outside the amateur limit legal limits outputs that makes the operation illegal,
To take it to an extreme, you COULD have a 100,00 Watt transmitter with capable of input power, but as long as it has only 1500 Watts of OUTPUT, it would be a "legal limit" amp.
Just wondering how many of the "law abiding" Hams ever break the speed limit on the highways and interstates? There seems to be more to worry about in Ham Radio than a guy running a few db over legal power speed limit.
3cx3000 is a good bottle, but the 3cx5000 is better. Check the specs.
