Oops!  That was supposed to be into the dummy load, just prerecording the show (which goes through the entire TX chain, without the 2500W amp) so we know exactly how it will sound on air.  Well, that's what 10 Watts AM from the exciter can do, a special look behind the scenes.  Full show and full power tomorrow.  Keep the theme secret!  :)  No reports will be replied to until tomorrow.
