Yes, in New Mexico we are limited to 50 Watts. That used to be only  
near the White Sands Missile Range, but now it it is the entire  
state. It pretty much curtails any serious weak signal work, but  
satellites can still be worked at that level. Much lower, though and  
even that will be a problem. This is the dual edged sword of shared  
allocations. It is nice that we have the band, but the restrictions  
can be difficult to live with. Sort of like a 16 year old with the  
family car. :^)+ - Dr. Megacycle KK6MC
