A-003-02: PEP, PEP relative to average power, PEP relative to voltage across load

A-003-02-01:
The power supplied to the antenna transmission line by a transmitter during an RF cycle at the highest crest of the modulation envelope is known as:

peak-envelope power

mean power

carrier power

full power

A-003-02-02:
To compute one of the following, multiply the peak-envelope voltage by 0.707 to obtain the RMS value, square the result and divide by the load resistance. Which is the correct answer?

PEP

PIV

ERP

power factor

A-003-02-03:
Peak-Envelope Power (PEP) for SSB transmission is:

Peak-Envelope Voltage (PEV) multiplied by 0.707, squared and divided by the load resistance

peak-voltage multiplied by peak current

equal to the rms power

a hypothetical measurement

A-003-02-04:
The formula to be used to calculate the power output of a transmitter into a resistor load using a voltmeter is:

P = E^2/R

P = EI/R

P = EI cos 0

P = IR

A-003-02-05:
How is the output Peak-Envelope Power of a transmitter calculated, if an oscilloscope is used to measure the Peak-Envelope Voltage across a dummy resistive load? PEP = Peak-Envelope Power PEV = Peak-Envelope Voltage Vp = peak-voltage RL = load resistance

PEP = [(0.707 PEV)(0.707 PEV)] / RL

PEP = [(Vp)(Vp)] / (RL)

PEP = (Vp)(Vp)(RL)

PEP = [(1.414 PEV)(1.414 PEV)] / RL
