Re: Use of a small amp to boost the 5 W Paraset output

Each time we increase power 4X the impact is roughly 1 S unit at the receive end. So going up to 10w is a pretty small change. Also, to drive a typical 10w RF amp you will likely need to modify the paraset to output less than 1w.  A lot of effort for little gain. 

If antenna space is scarce, evaluate if you erect something at least partly vertical. A UK ham has a small garden vertical antenna on line that looks rather nice.
