"375 watts" and "PEP" are ridiculous concepts developed for the modern
era of slopbucket/CW linear amps, cheap hammy watt meters and should
not be a part of RF power conversations in the realistic AM world in
my opinion.

No one can precisely measure PEP or "375 watts."  Rarely does anyone
operate into a 50 J0 load.  Let's quit kidding ourselves.  Just run
whatever carrier you can get out of your rig, modulate it to near 100%
negative and move on.

The exception is for anyone who has never in his life driven over the
speed limit on US highways.  If you are one of those types you may go
ahead and obsess over the 375 watt nonsense.
