Yesterday I was working at one of the local FM
stations transmitter sites. They employ 2 30k Watt
transmitters. Keep in mind that these transmitters are
*tube* powered devices. On each of the transmitters
is a meter for plate voltage and plate current. The
readings pretty much humble any guitar amp:
Plate Voltage: 12,000 Volts
Plate Current: 2.7 Amps
I was impressed.
