Next time I'm in Knoxville, I'll hit you up to show you. Just because you're seeing watts with a dual final radio like a Connex 3300 doesn't mean much.
If you go to a keydown, (radio comp) you'll find that 100% of the competitors are using CB radios, not 10 meter exports. It's for the very reason I described above, the signal is on frequency and all the power goes out to that frequency.
Ever hear a radio "bleed" or "splash" other channels? That's because they're dirty signals and 99% of the time, it's an export radio with clipped limiters, sometimes, they aren't even clipped, it's just something they do.
