Power out control

What are folks using to measure the tx power output?

Is there a standard attenuator setup that might be used for rigs that don't de-power like the newer equipment?

I run an old tube transceiver that seems sufficient in all other respects including the accuracy (add-on tcxo digital readout) and stability. But, its final bias idle is 65watts so it is not very controllable at the 1-5watt levels I would like to use.

How accurate can the dBm measurements be with real live antennas?

Thanks from an old "newbie"
