Power level attenuation (dBm)

  1. Feb 5, 2013 #1

    I have a question regarding frequency, power...
    Let's say I have signal with power level of X dBm and the signal has been attenuated by Y times.
    What is the correct formula to use to get the final power ?

    Thank You

    For power ratios, use 10*log(Pf/Pi)
