No one has said anything to me running 100w, and 4:1 asymetrical 
positive-to-negative ratio peaks in the last 4 years.

See?  That's the whole point.  Who's gonna bitch about instantaneous 
peaks *ALL THE WAY UP* to 1600w, when it happens every once in a while, 
for a split second, when you're only running 100w of carrier, and clean, 
clean audio?  They'd have to go after a -whole lot- of sidebanders, 
before they came looking at me and my AM audio.
