Dutch A.T. ( our version of the FCC) will allow the Full licensed amateurs to use 1600 watts P.E.P. under conditions.
We will have to apply for the special power, and an plan must accompany the request for levels of R.F. around the antenna farm that also has to be in the request.

That from the normal 400 watt P.E.P. level normally allowed with no restrictions.
SO, we get more in line of the country's surrounding us, Germany 750 watts P.E.P. and some Nordic countries allowing 1 KW P.E.P.

Thhe Netherlands is densly populated and most amateurs will live in city's where that special permit might form a problem with expected problems in other people's installations.

That's cool!

Now if we could all have Canada's level.

Or Italy's defacto (as opposed to statutory) power limits.

I would be happy with Canada's ID on the half hour.

Let's be honest, there are enough hams using more as 400 watts here when you see Acom 2000 P.A,s in their pictures running flat out.
Most of the time our A.T. doesn't do anything about it, as long there are no complaints.
I can use the SB-1000 flat out, if i wanted to, no problems from neighbors here, but i keep myself to the 400 watt limit.
That way the new 3-500 ZG tube will last a lifetime.
THe extra 6 dB is quite costly, my SB-1000 delivers 800-900 watts easy if i wanted to.

I do think it would be cool to have a special license class without power limits, in amateur radio. There is a world of technology difference between even 1.5kW and a 50kW xmitter, and some hams would do well pushing engineering limits with that sort of power (Think Titan bounce).

Sadly, there are too many dinks in the hobby to even be able to iron out the details.

That right there—too many dinks.

I'm finding that I don't miss my AR station as much as I thought I would when I first decided to move onto the boat.

I use to have an article on how to build one of those 50Kw amps. It used a CK722 for a final.

And I'm over here like, 15 watts, woohoo.

Indeed Fred......

The holder of an Amateur Radio Operator Certificate with Advanced Qualification is limited to a maximum transmitting power of:

(a) where expressed as direct-current input power, 1,000 W to the anode or collector circuit of the transmitter stage that supplies radio frequency energy to the antenna; or
(b) where expressed as radio frequency output power measured across an impedance-matchedload,

(i) 2,250 W peak envelope power for transmitters that produce any type of single sideband emission, or
(ii) 750 W carrier power for transmitters that produce any other type of emission.


But are U.S. Ops limited to 1000 watts PEP or input? :scratchchin:

1500 watts PEP output

Yeah, 100 watts max here, depending upon forward reflection at any given moment

I'll stick to the SB-1000 and 400 watts, it will do 900, but at least the new 3-500 ZG will last a long time that way ;)
It's nice to have the option, though i don't see the reason for me to use it, my antenna;s and tuners could handle it though.

I hear ya. I typically only operate 5W out, sometimes, 20W.

At least your hands are yuuuuge.
