All of which drifts away from the "using a receiver as a measurement tool"
LPL's technique is still the best....use a real wattmeter, hold S meter

Yes, this is a good method, although a bit cumbersome. Remember, if you're
plotting a beam, the wattmeter has to have selectable scales to handle the 30dB
dynamic range needed... and most wattmeters have their best accuracy near full
scale. The transmitter needs to be adjustable over 30dB range also.
