Scope watts or nope watts, take your pick. Tired of misleading BS yet? If they don't show you or do so in a deceiving way, you've been mislead. Learn to identify "Golden Screwdriver / Software Jockeys and Scammers". *Note: There'll always be drama regarding my disgruntled competitors and their followers, they're just doing their best.

"Radios not only transform signals into waves, they transform waves into sound"
Meter swinging over-modulated radios with a noisy receiver and miscalibrated "S" Meter have been "peaked & tuned", comp-tuned or so-called Hi-Fi mods performed and misaligned by a Golden Screwdriver magician. Yes, magician not technician.
Internet, Facebook, and truck stop competition tunes are useless in the Real World. Not only do they produce a noisy receiver, they'll bleed your wallet and all over neighbors too! Years ago, while still accepting walk-ins, this was about 90% of all radio related issues and complaints from customers nationwide .. Still Is!!
****How to recognize****
They'll ask you to "look at the meter" or other test equipment stacked up the wall claiming that a pure waveform on a "O"scope isn't necessary. Odds are it's because they cant! If they did, they'd expose themselves as a Hack. RUN!!!
They'll poise their meter farm at you while making strange vocal sounds, whistling or injecting some unknown tone into the mic socket while trying to convince you that distortion is considered rms, average or Bird watts and usable power. NOT! Get That Part? PAY ATTENTION!!
Most don't have a clue what each unit of measurement represents, how to derive it or have an accurate way of testing but they sure do put on a show! This might look impressive to some but in reality, these tunes produce "Far Less Usable Power". Sound familiar? Many have fallen for these "tricks" so don't feel bad.
"Software Jockeys" claiming to be an "Engineer" (lol) don't do or show you anything useful at all. They either copy and paste (Plagiarism) or talk a lot trying to baffle you with their "BS" while hiding behind a pseudonym (Extra channels, Channel King Boards, CB Kidd, Stinger Boards etc). This type has no integrity, practical or "Real World Experience" at all whatsoever! Ever hear them on the radio? Right!
***Real World Performance***
Do your due diligence! Demand the testing and tuning of your equipment on a minimum 100 MHz **Analog** Oscilloscope, Bird 4314c meter or equivalent and a 1 GHz spectrum analyzer / Service Monitor with a NIST (https://www.nist.gov/) Traceable "Certification of Calibration". It's the only accurate way of measuring spurious emissions, harmonics and true power @ the fundamental frequency replicating "Real World Performance".
All test equipment and gear under test including meter, scope, spectrum analyzer, sampler, radio and amp if applicable must be in plain sight at all times while gear is under test, fully modulated. Inducing distortion though meter using un-calibrated test equipment is misrepresentation and an illusion playing on your ignorance while insulting your intelligence!
If they cant display everything all at the same time while under test, explain ac volts, pep, pk, cw, rms (Ohms Law), capacitance, inductance and the basic principles of a phase shift then how do you expect them to accurately test, tune or align your system? Ever wonder why they attempt to replicate or imitate everything I do and say but yet fail miserably in a deceiving way?
Fine Tune CB adheres to NIST and other standards to maintain accuracy and consistency for providing "Real World Performance" with integrity. https://www.nist.gov/
The Bench: HP8924c Service Monitor. A comprehensive list below in the comments section including dBm to watts and volts tables.
"More range and reliability with peace of mind, get Fine Tuned, not peaked and ruined".
Don't let them play Three Card Monte with you because they will. Most importantly, find someone who's honest and competent, not part of Facebook CB related groups, a pseudonym on a forum, has a Service Monitor with a NIST Traceable Certification of Calibration and not just test equipment stacked up the wall trying to baffle you with BS. Never settle for less because that's what you'll get, Houdini tricks, ghost watts, "S9" out of calibration and a noisy receiver!
