YUP. The two things are the tubes and the power supply.. One half
dissipation is MAX.. you are using 800 watt tubes so 400Watt carrier is max.
The Thunderbolt has a real power supply, so, sure 300 watts is fine.Since
SSB is 25 to 30 percent average of peaks the manufactures can squeeze in
small supplies for voice or CW service. Ever make you wonder that they might
allow 2500 watts input SSB but only 400 for RTTY. AM and RTTY separates the
Men from the boys.. Mike
