> However, highly non-efficient.

>Actually not TRUE. The total power pulled from power supply determines
effeciency. A low level and linear consumes less power for same carrier
power. See some KW mobile rigs from years ago.
also I remember WCKY had 500000 watts modulated carrier ( 2 megawatts pep)
and it was from a LINEAR!.. my$ 0.02. Mike
