800 W ... Well  that  answers the  question  Mike  !

But leaves another unexpected one .. Colin reports he has 80 watts carrier power , that puts your level at + 10 dB .. , there are + 3 dB's missing , I had anticipated a negative dB situation as from his description, he is using a bottom loaded single wire inv L...
But, yes , correctly designed DSP is worth miles of wire and
significantly reduces PSU load !

Well, I am running around 400mW ERP (as stated on my Opera beacon)
from a transmitter with 800W RF output giving 3,2A into an inverted-L
14m high with 5x14m parallel top wires. Antenna efficiency (assuming
80% tx PA efficiency) is 0.05%.

I imagine G6AVK is running a lot less - from the reports it must be
about 70mW ERP which suggests perhaps 0.1% antenna eficiency. His
successes show how useful Op32 is.in producing reception at 1000km+
with that power level.

There  is  a  interesting  question  ..

Two  LF stations ,  quite  close , similar  times ,  Colin   running
80  watts  carrier  power..

 what    power / Ae  efficiency    difference     produced     + 7
 and  +8 dB  at the  Rx's  ?

Just 80 watts , just on the   Op32 decode  limit ,  dynamic  with  5
dB  in hand ?
