as long as the peaks are undistorted and the baseline is not pinched, 
then the peaks could reach as high as a ratio of 4:1 (or more) and still 
be legal, as long as the audio peaks remain under 1.5kW  (hint: a ratio 
of 2:1 is considered 100%, when modulating with a sine wave, but... [see 
my previous post]

why not 100% negative and 150% positive?  OR, if you want that 
"background quieting" signal, reverse the plate leads on the modulator, 
effectively reversing the phase of the audio, and have more carrier 
output, and less PEP, for the same amount of audio?

We've beaten this horse to death several times before.  I thought we had 
already nudged it's head with our foot, and pulled it's tail to see if 
we could get one more kick out of it.  Who knows what appendage has been 
yanked on this time, to see if we can, yet again, revive this topic...

73, etc
