rf math

Hi,

How is that possible

25mW =eirp(17dBm)

Thanks

Re: rf math

Hi

Sorry for that , i forget to post the gain part

Thank you

Re: rf math

EIRP = Transmit power - Losses + Gains

From your screenshot: 14mW Transmit power, 0 dB loss, 5 dB antenna gain.

1 mW = 0 dBm by definition

2 mW = 3 dBm

4 mW = 6 dBm

8 mW = 9 dBm

16 mW = 12 dBm

And 12 dBm (which is the 16 mW transmit power) - 0 dB (cable loss) + 5 dB (antenna gain) = 17 dBm EIRP.

So the EIRP depends on the antenna gain, which makes it possible in your first screenshot that the same transmit power results into different EIRP values.
