this is wrong.  There is -no- maximum carrier limit.  The only maximum 
power limit imposed on
Ham Radio operators is 1,500W PEP output, regardless of mode.

1,500W PEP output on AM, -would- be 375w *if* you modulate that carrier 
with a sine-wave.

We don't talk in sine-waves.

Don Chester/K4KYV, Bacon/WA3WDR and John Coleman/WA5BXO collaborated on this
very subject. 

ALL AM'ers should read this page, and read it again and when you're 
done, read it again.
