The application can use rig->power2mW API function if it is implemented
by the backend.

Otherwise, the min/max power is also available via the
rig_caps->tx_range_list1 / 2 - again, if properly implemented by the

Conversion shouldn't be done at application level,
since for HF/VHF/UHF rigs the max power depends on which band you are
on. I don't know if there is any convention for whether 1.0
corresponds to the "global" max power or just the band specific max
