To measure DC power from power supply you need ordinary multimeter or two of them. One to measure DC voltage and second to measure average current from power supply if it hasn't them build in. They measure average values, you do not need any extractions. I suppose your amplifier has properly filtered supply voltage and (...)

Dear Osawa Odessa: In an earlier reply others and myself tried to explain that all RF amplifiers amplify RF power, and you can measure the voltage across a typical source/load impedance like 50 Ohms.
