I'm looking at an IoT application where we're allowed 30W ERP.  The transmitter is 5W, so even with antenna gain I have room to amplify that.

How do you count an amplifier in your link budget?  Just add the amp's tx gain and subtract connectors, or is there more to it than that?

Strangely I've never used an amplifier.....I've never had a legal application for one before.
