I'm puzzled by your statement earlier, Chris, that claims you 
could run 500w in Greece.  I found this on the net (admittedly, I 
didn't look -very- hard for this info).  Can I 'assume' that by 
SSB, they mean 'voice' operations, inclusive of AM?

What is the max power that I can use in H.F.?

Max output power in H.F. is: 300-Watt p-p
-------------------------------------------

300W?  Using a sine-wave to modulate to 100%, that's only 75W of 
carrier!

--------------------------------------------
Is there any BAND PLAN with frequencies in SV land?
   GENERAL H.F. GREEK BAND PLAN

BAND     FREQ.  		MODE  			SERVICE

160m  	1830-1850 kHz   	SSB-CW 			PRIMARY

80m	3500-3800 kHz		SSB-CW-DIGITAL		PRIMARY

40m	7000-7100 kHz		SSB-CW			PRIMARY

30m	10100-10150 kHz		CW			SECONDARY

20m	14000-14350 kHz		SSB-CW-DIGITAL		PRIMARY

17m	18068-18168 kHz		SSB-CW			PRIMARY

15m	21000-21450 kHz		SSB-CW-DIGITAL		PRIMARY

12m	24890-24990 kHz		SSB-CW			PRIMARY

10m	28000-29700 kHz		SSB-CW-FM-DIGITAL	PRIMARY
----------------------------------------------

Conditions have been pretty good on 75m, of late.  I wonder if 
it's possible to schedule something at the peak optimum time 
(UTC) for a connection between the US and Greece?
