IEC 60244-15:1999 pdf download – Methods of measurement for radio transmitters一 Part 15: Amplitude-modulated transmitters for sound broadcasting.
This part of lEG 60244 contains the methods of measurement to assess (he performance characteristics of amplitude-modulated transmitters for sound broadcasting in the LF, MF and HF bands.
This standard is intended to be used for type tests and acceptance or factory tests,
Fewer or additional measurements may be carried out by agreement between customer and manufacturer. Any additional measurements should preferably be in accordance with relevant standards published by the IEC or by other international bodies.
This part of IEC 60244 does not specify limiting values for acceptable performance as these are usually given in the equipment specification or in requirements laid down by the responsible regulating bodies. However, some values are quoted, where appropriate, for guidance in the presentation of the results.

definitions of performance characteristics
For convenience, the definitions of particular performance characteristics are included in clause 6 describing the method of measurement.
4 General conditions of operation
Any device for the suppression of unwanted signals, irrespective of whether or not the device is located inside the transmitter, shall be considered as a part of the transmitter br the purpose of this standard.
Unless otherwise specified, the measurements shall be made under normal operating conditions and at rated output power. It required, they shall be repeated under extreme environmental conditions, In accordance with the equipment specification.
The transmitting mode and the measured output power of the transmitter under test shall be stated.
The mains supply and the environmental conditions shall be slated with the measurement results.
The transmitter shall be connected to a test load having a VSWR, relative to the nominal load impedance of the transmitter, not greater than
— 1,2:1 at frequencies within the designated broadcasting band:
— 1,5:1 at frequencies of any measured unwanted frequency up to ten times the highest frequency of the designated broadcastinU band.
