Yesterday I was working/listening and waiting AO7 SSB VHF/UHF, One
station was booming in. Call sign intentionally not posted to skip their
possible embarrassment. Midway thru the pass the signals went dead. No
receive at all. If I recall from reading my theory he was likely hitting
bird with 100 watts and used up the batteries in bird. 
Am I on track?
Also, last week I was working a 6 land station who was proudly boasting
100 watts, Yikes, I never use more than 20 watts and my signal makes it
no problem.
