The relative energy flux Frel of capillary-gravity waves on a moving stream is calculated for various wavelengths, as a function of wave amplitude. In some cases, abrupt changes in the sign of Frel are found to occur for a small increase in wave amplitude. The way in which the phenomena might be observed experimentally is indicated.
