no sir.
today is at 50 watts.
im enjoying some random tunes while i work.
i may keep the xmtr on after work at 500mW or maybe less (ill edit this post to reflect the power level) for the remainder of the week.
edit - low power of less than 500mW at 2200z (not sure of the exact power level) leaving it on 24/7 for the week except for the occasional 50 watt daytime broadcast if i feel like it :)
