I like your idea of buying one of those 10 KW amps to clear the
frequency for QRP, but the only real problem is that such power levels
are illegal in every country. It certainly wouldn't sit well with the
FCC, or your local equivalent, when they walk in the door and see the
needle on your wattmeter sitting at 10 KW. The solution is
simple--open up your wattmeter, remove the microammeter and replace it
with a milliammeter. The 1000X reduction in meter sensitivity will
help nicely. If it already has a milliammeter in it, carefully remove
the innards of the meter from the case and relabel the scale with a
nice, safe number at the top, such as 1000 watts. This initial
consultation is free, but I will have to charge for future office
visits. (Please be sure to bring along your MasterfulCharge or Vesa
card.) 73 and Queue Our Pea DE WA8MCQ
