    I'm monitoring 7.200, I know...

    I hear one station confess his amp can go as high as 2,600 watts.

    I thought that was illegal? Why publicly admit such a thing, unless the FCC has more bark than bite?

    There's nothing illegal about that. I own a car that can go 100 MPH. That's perfectly legal, unless I decide to drive it at that speed.

    not illegal to be capable of it, just illegal to actually do it....
    can be operated legally at reduced power.

    (Just dont drive it that hard)

    Confession IS good for the soul. Or so I am told.

    Capability may imply but does not prove that the amp was used to full capability.

    And just because someone says it on the air doesn’t make it true.

    YMMV. VWPBL(STn). Don’t sweat the small stuff. And find a better frequency to monitor.

    The same reason I listen to 3840 & 3908 ... because I can.

    Why monitor 7200? It's much the same as the WIN System over here on the West Coast, there will ALWAYS be someone to talk to...

    I know... don't flog me tomorrow, at least after lunch!

    Wait till the really steep indignation kicks in about 3am PT. And I'm not talking about on the air. :D
