I've never directly studied GR waves myself, but I will make the time to sometime. It seems as though 9B could be approximately calculated with the virial theorem by assuming the energy radiated is equal to the orbital energy lost:

G*M1*M2/(2*r^2) r=20 km

though GR effects would make it a little more complicated than that. I get about 10^47 ergs (10^40 Joules).
