[AMRadio] Ferroresonant transformer revisited

Thanks Jim...

I am deriving the power rating using a known resistance and the current 
drawn by that resistance when placed across the output of the supply.

R = 8.57 ohms
I = 2.9 amps

P = I²R
P = 8.41 x 8.57
P = 72.0737

E(rms) = square root of (P x R)
E(rms) = 24.853 volts

Oddly enough, I measured 24.7 vdc on my Fluke 189 multimeter.
