I just want to confirm something. Can I run 100% duty-cycle modes at full power? From reading the specs of my 6300 it looks like I can, but I would rather ask a noob question than fry my PA stage.

BTW. I I have worked JT65 with 1.5KW. Really helped when I worked a DL who was -29 as he did not have a radio that heard better than about -20. But with full power he copied me OK

BTW with my Big SteppIR MonstIR. The ERP was effectively 15KW

So while JT65 is effective as a low power mode, there is nothing wrong with using power as long as u are not splattering.
