Transmit Power vs Antenna gain

The VP8ORK team is qrv from Orkney islands.This DXCC entity was a new one for me.But there was a problem.My linear amplifier 2 weeks ago had a problem on the Automatic Antenna Tuner board.Not a big one (some burned capacitors due to high swr) but i had to send it to the manufacture.So i was wondering.Will i pass through the pileups with the 100 watts of the transceiver ??? Well i got the answer.Yes! And not one time but six until now.
Of course the winner is the antenna gain.
Good luck all with VP8ORK
