According to OpenBSC wiki:
"How many dBm is the nominal power of this BTS. This setting is only
used as a base for computing power levels displayed to the user. "
So this one is just to calculate the powervalue to be displayed for you,
so I assume it does nothing more than that.
But how do you test by the way?
