 I found a FS of 370 microvolt/metre. From this follows an impressive
power (EIRP) of 52 milliwatt. I guess). what program did you use ?

You don't need a programme, just work from basic theory ......

From Ohms law  E^2 / Zo  (of free space = 377 ohms)   =   Watts / m^2
At a distance R from an omnidirectional radiator (the definition of EIRP),
all the transmitted power is spread out over a sphere of surface area 4 * PI * R^2, which is equal to your measured power density in W/m^2
So EIRP of Tx   =    (Watts / m^2) * 4.PI.R^2   =  E^2 / 4 * PI * R^2
where E isthe  measured field strength in Volts / metre
Then if you really want it in terms of dipole ERP, just subtract the magic
figure of 2.14dB ( or divide by 1.64) , ie. the gain of a dipole.
