dBm

(DeciBels at 1 Milliwatt) A measurement of power using one milliwatt as the reference point (0 dBm). For example, a signal at .1 milliwatt (100 microwatts) is a loss of 10 dBm. A radio station transmitting 50,000 watts of power may wind up attenuating to only a couple milliwatts by the time it is picked up by a radio receiver. See deciBel and dBA.
