Uplink power

Hi Guys
We have heard all this talk about 'high power' before
Now we are getting it on AO40!
Back in the days when John LA2QAA and I were working FO 20 we both tried to
stress the fact that high power was not the answer.
At that time we were both running around 2-5w into the bird and getting 59
reports,now I hear stations saying they are running 100w,ok FO20 is not in
such good condition now
The same criteria applies now on AO40 .
It's the EARS not the MOUTH thats important ,improving the downlink will do
away with need for 'high power' and lead to less stress all round!

Merry Christmass guy's,and a Happy new year

O to be young again!
