The transmitter should run fine at 5500 watts.   But if that is your licensed TPO and you have a neighbor transmitter move in which produces excessive IMD, you may need to add an output filter on your transmitter necessitating a TPO increase to make up for the filter loss.   You wouldn’t have any head room for the filter.

As long as you have a good load, proper cooling and aren't exceeding your licensed ERP...you should be fine at 5500 watts.

We're looking into getting a new Nautel 5KW transmitter. They are rated for a max output of 5500 watts. Management wants to run it a full output for a max ERP. Is that something you have done? or would even consider? 

To me, it feels like I'm gonna get in my car and run full throttle 100% of the time! Don't think it would last too long at that rate.
