Default Meson Screen design help

Hello all,

I'm trying to verify the Predesigned Mesons Screen shown on T4 Book B Fire, Fusion, and Steel Table 142 page 99 following the process on p. 58

The table shows predesigned meson screens for ships < 1,000 displacement tons.

The first TL 12 meson screen on Table 142 appears to have an input of 10 MW.

On page 58 the meson screens statistics are calculated using the following:

Volume = 20 m^3 per MW; mass = 0.75t per m^3; antenna area = 10 m^2 per MW; and the price is 0.1 MCr per m^3.

Volume = 20 x 10 = 200 m^3 this matches the table
Mass = 0.75 x 200 m^3 = 150 t another match
Antenna Area = 10 x 10 = 100 m^2 the table has the area being 1 m^2
Cost = 200 x .1 MCr = 20 MCr three out of four match.

I've checked for errata and did not find anything about this particular issue.

The possibilities I see are that

1. The antenna area formula is really .1 m^2 per MW or
2. The Antenna Area on Table 142 is supposed to be 100 instead of 1.

I also checked TNE FF&S and the write-ups match which also return that the meson screen antenna area is 100 m^2.

Can anyone help me out on how to correctly calculate the meson screen antenna area please?
