reducing the carrier power to one watt or less.
(c) To demonstrate the capability of the transmitter, measurements of
primary supply voltage and transmitter output power must be made with
the equipment operating on the vessel's main power supply, as follows:
(1) The primary supply voltage measured at the power input terminals to
the transmitter terminated in a matching artificial load, must be
measured at the end of 10 minutes of continuous operation of the
transmitter at its rated power output.
(2) The primary supply voltage, measured in accordance with the
