   (1) The primary supply voltage measured at the power input terminals to
   the transmitter terminated in a matching artificial load, must be
   measured at the end of 10 minutes of continuous operation of the
   transmitter at its rated power output.

   (2) The primary supply voltage, measured in accordance with the
