The procedure for calibrating antennas with a minimum measurement error is described. The relationships for calibration (verification) of antennas by the reference antenna method with regard to their phase centers are derived. The possibility of using the rationing of the antenna parameters both by the gain and the effective area is indicated. An antenna calibration scheme is provided.

Key words: measuring antennas, antenna aperture, gain, transmission coefficient, center of radiation, field amplitude and phase, distance between antennas, calibration methods.
