Hi Steve --I hope you mean 325 Watts to the dummy load you will recall 
that power above 50 Watts in Arizona requires a Waiver of the Government 
restriction seen in Footnote US7 in Part 2.106 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations  The 50 W restriction continues to apply to all of Arizona 
and Florida as well as parts of several other states, including 
California, Nevada, Massachusetts, Alaska, North Dakota, Alabama, 
Georgia and South Carolina. Exceptions to the power limit must be 
expressly authorized by the FCC after mutual agreement, on a 
case-by-case basis, between the FCC District Director in the applicable 
district and the Military Area Frequency Coordinator at the applicable 
military base. , further expanding the 50 W maximum output power 
restriction in place for the 420-450 MHz band in the US Southwest. (The 
applicable Part 97 Amateur Service rule is §97.303, which incorporates 
§2.106 by reference.) At least one such Waiver was held by Charlie 
Justinak W7GBI (sk) Some where I have the actual document in his logs 
that I inherited at his passing.
