I might be the only guy who thinks you were right to suggest using plenty of 
power. Everyone else can fuss, but we all know how it is.

Maybe to keep everyone else happy it could have been stated "use the minimum 
power necessary to talk over every else." That's the reality of operating 
AO-51 (FM birds) on field day.

Unfortunately I (and our FD group) have not found enough power to talk 
through the FM birds the last few years. QRP isn't going to get it in the 
mid section of the country where we are.

Crank it up!
