And even this is conservative -- JT65 is 48 sec TX and 72 sec RX, so 40%
duty cycle. FT8 and MSK144 have equal TX and RX times, so 50% duty
cycle. The TX period for MSK144 can be varied from 5-30 sec, but TX and
RX times are always equal.

Yes, the amp can run indefinitely on 50 Mhz with 50 sec key down TX at
continuous 1500W carrier followed by 50 sec in RX. We specifically
were looking at 100% carrier modes like JT65 etc. when we
conservatively specified this.
