Note that the rules have no provision for validating compliant operation. It would be your responsibility, as I see it, to verify the field strength measurements. Whatever one does, keep in mind how you would defend the measurements.
A general principle in engineering is that the measurement techniques and tools need to be properly used and “tracable”, in other words, if you make a measurement, you need to know, for legal purposes, that the instrument is traceable to NIST and that the instrument was used in an accepted manner. I did this for many years and never had a problem since I had the paperwork and the trail back to NIST. That being said, ultimately, the FCC agents’ measurements will most likely prevail.
Not simple is it?
