Quoting K4TWJ, OSCAR:The Ham Radio Satellites; 1979:

quote "The AGC system of Oscar 7 is slightly more active than that of OSCAR 
6, which means stations running excessively high power (over 200 watts in th 
case of Oscar 7)...reduce the satellites sensitivity for other stations. No 
station should run more than 100 watts ERP. Presently, this situation is 
being aggrivated by stations running extremely high ERP. Additional measures 
..... will be included in Phase III satellites (to) discourage high power 
activities." end quote

Not pointing fingers...just wanted a close enough topic to bring this out!
