Past, present and future power measurement techniques - thermal, diode and new RMS detection techniques; the importance of directional coupler parameters for use with RMS detectors; RMS power detection techniques needed for new digital radio and TV broadcast standards--IBOC and 8 VSB require RMS measurement techniques.  Bob will also discussed practical matters including antenna protection systems and interlock and motorized switch management.
