The power change can be accomplished with a simple computer program that can
also record meter readings.  WCLZ had such a system for their AM six years
ago.  Someone checked both the meter readings and the computer print-out to
make sure things were operating correctly.  It was possible for something to
go wrong and for the station to operate illegally for a day or so (though I
am not aware that ever happened) but by checking on things daily, any
problem would be caught quickly.
