7762 outdoor APs - 5.15 - 5.25 GHz band (channels 36 to 48) output power

We have ZoneFlex 7762 APs purchased before 2014. We would like to take advantage of the 2014 FCC rule change that allows outdoor usage of the 5.15 - 5.25 GHz band (channels 36 to 48) at 1 W output power. Our version of ZoneDirector allows it but are the 7762's FCC compliant "as is" or do we need to adjust Tx power? See https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2014/05/01/2014-09279/unlicensed-national-information-infr...

1W output, aka 1000 mW, aka 30dBm is a pretty high Tx power output.  I do not believe the 7762 can transmit at that level even with country codes applied.  I cannot find specific documentation since its a bit older, however most of the current APs are in the 20-28dbBm Tx Power range.

The 7762 antenna adds 3db gain, as does BeamFlex add another 3db gain, up to you to stay within country limitations, and you can find the datasheet here: http://c541678.r78.cf2.rackcdn.com/datasheets/ds-zoneflex-7762-series.pdf

Thanks, I wasn't sure how much the BeamFlex was adding.
