Trying to find the power density of the transmitter? Looking to install in an area where radio broadcast are strictly controlled and this is a question they have before we can proceed.

Do you mean the transmitter part of the exede tria. It is up to 2watts. It varies based on weather and other factors. It is strictly line of sight though. Only in front of dish directly would you be faced with any problems. The frequency is very high.

Perhaps I'm asking the wrong question.  I need the Power (1-2 watts from what I see here) and the gain of the antenna.  The customer is interested in the Power Density but that seems to be a function of the Transmit Power and the Antenna Gain.

The transmitter does not "radiate" in the same manner as a radio station or a CB, Instead it is a very narrow beam focused on a target 22,300 miles away.

As stated by others, 1 to 2 watts of focused  energy aimed directly at the satellite.

Install specs call for the reflector/transmitter to be mounted at least 5' above ground level.

If there is an RF risk, it is in the area between the reflector and the TRIA.
