The 60dbm comes from the 1 KW power of the transmitter mentioned in the problem statement.

What is the 1KW power to do with the EIRP?

The problem says that the EIRP of the transmitter was 1 KW. The equation with the 60DBM was sritten for a transmitter with much less power. The 60 dbm makes the equation good for a 1 KW transmitter

no. Look up where the equation first appears in your notes. There it will tell what power the transmitter should have. It will not be 1 kw. The 60 db steps up the output power required by the equation to the 1 kw level.
