Not necessarily. According to the currently valid regulation in OK land we
can legally emit up to allowed power for the op's class, in my case it is
1kW. No note about limited ERP for 136 kHz band... This regulation was
already in force when I transmitted from the 150 m high T-ant. No abuse,
paradise for LFers.
Someone else here also mentioned that they don't have limited ERP on 136
kHz, I guess it was PA or ON land?

As far as I got it the 1 Watt ERP limit is given by the CEPT/ERC
Recommendation 62-01 E (see http://www.ero.dk/carc/cer62-01e.htm ).
Apart from that several in several countries are giving additional (!)
power limits, eg :
Belgium : 2kW output (lifted in 04-2001)
Holland : 400W output
Finland : 100W output
Germany : 20W output (lifted ?)
So I assume that in any country that follows the CEPT 62-01 E there is the
1 Watt ERP limit ?
In practice for most of us this 1 Watt limit is a rather theoretical
burden, unless you run many kW and use huge isolators.
Lifting the 1W limit would probabably get 2 or 3 very strong stations on
the band and spoil the fun for all the others. Crossing the pond with a
bute force of 100W ERP is no challenge, doing the same with far less than
1W ERP must give a real satisfaction.
