For the record, my opinion and $0.99 gets you a "Big
Gulp" at the corner mini-market. Here it is...
Taking a close look at the ARRL rules for VHF
contests, you'll notice that they *never* reference
ERP. On the other hand, they do reference the term
"Power Output" twice (Rules 1.15, 2.2.1).
Traditionally, this is the power measured at the final
output stage of your station.
I do not work for the ARRL, adjudicate for the ARRL,
check logs for the ARRL. I am happy, however, to
drink a Gig Gulp between contest CQ's. :)
