Don't worry, Frank. 50 kW is nothing compared with what Vatican City  
Radio used to expose the faithful to as it spread the word - until  
they were asked to turn it down. It's interesting to note that all  
the Russian blowtorches that used to spread Soviet propaganda world- 
wide were quickly snapped up by Evangelical broadcasters. Mike  
Tuggle, a leading light in the crystal set DX community, once  
suggested to me that if every AM transmitter between Ireland and  
China were reduced in power by a factor of ten, nobody in Europe  
would notice the difference. I think he's right.
