Kauai EIRP

Kauai Radar Station High Gain Military Radars Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power Calculation. Enough to cook a reef? Some Fish? Some of You?

List does not include Ardel Radar Facility added in 2011 and Airport and Weather Radars on the island

From Wikipedia

In radio communication systems, equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) or, alternatively, effective isotropically radiated power[1] is the amount of power that a theoretical isotropic antenna (which evenly distributes power in all directions) would emit to produce the peak power density observed in the direction of maximum antenna gain. EIRP can take into account the losses in transmission line and connectors and includes the gain of the antenna. The EIRP is often stated in terms of decibels over a reference power emitted by an isotropic radiator with an equivalent signal strength. The EIRP allows comparisons between different emitters regardless of type, size or form. From the EIRP, and with knowledge of a real antenna’s gain, it is possible to calculate real power and field strength values.
