Perhaps OT although it relates to AM bc transmitters...

Can anyone here point me to written evidence that FCC accepted an I squared R power measurement at the antenna for evidence of AM bc licence compliance, within a range of +/- 2% certainty.

Delta developed their CPB-1 bridge specifically to determine power levels to the satisfaction of FCC in the days when disputes with stations could not be easily resolved with power meters such as Bird now offer.  FCC must have made some pronouncements on the method.
