Abstract. In many countries the electromagnetic field strength in the proximity of licensed amateur radio stations is limited to ensure public safety. If the station antenna(s) and/or the environmental situation are complex, only measurement results are acceptable as proof, and proper calibration of the field strength meters ("radiation monitors") is mandatory. A system and a procedure are described here, enabling calibration of such "radiation monitors" at a high quality level and traceable to the SI units, but with low-budget amateur equipment.
