Displayed received power Rx. what's assumed

After running FMFool for my location, I get a table and one of the items listed is Received power in dBm at the receiver. I checked the FAQ but didn't find an explaination on what the power actually means. Is this power in the air, and do I have to make adjustments as a function of any antenna gain and losses?

You're right, you need to add antenna gain and subtract distribution losses.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
