    How much power does the alternator produce,
    what is the efficiency of the antenna and
    how much power is effectively radiated ?

    SAQ has no facility to measure the output power. The only instrument connected to output is a thermocouple that measures the current from the alterator to the antenna. However, we estimate that the power to the antenna is about 70 – 80 kW and the effectively radiated power from the antenna is about 8 kW.
