60 minutes on, 60 minutes off
is then also 50% duty cycle?

On, 15 seconds Off, looks like a 50% duty cycle to me.

We have all been educated that due to the high duty
cycle of FT8, it is wise to not run full power of you
rig to avoid burning up the finals.
My question relates to the effect of the transmitted
bandwidth, which in FT8 is 50HZ, has on the actual power
loading of the finals.
Since when transmitting a 50Hz signal via a transmitter
capable of about 2Khz or so, would this , in effect ,
very lightly load the finals, even at full power?
