"Low Power" in Majhor Contests Now a Uniform 100 Watts
The ARRL has redefined
what constitutes "low power" in its contests, reducing the maximum
power level for the category from its long-standing 150 watts to the 100-watt
level used by most other major contest sponsors, including CQ.
According to Newsline, the League made the change both
to standardize its categories with other contests and in recognition of the
fact that 100 watts is now the most common "barefoot" output power of
current HF transceivers.
