Tommy:

That's great advice, but most of my stations don't have a dummy load.

Hi Steve,

Use the bird meter, and run the transmitter into a known 50 ohm dummy load ( since it will be a non-reactive, resistive load you can make sure the load is good by measuring it with a good ohmmeter.  Adjust the transmitter power until the Bird says you are at licensed TPO,  adjust the tx meter cal to make the tx read 100%.

Blessings!
