Abstract : The paper describes a dry static calorimeter intended for the measurement of rf power in coaxial lines. The calorimeter is calibrated with dc power. Its maximum input level is 10 W and the highest frequency of operation is 8 GHz. A detailed analysis of the sources of error is presented. The total estimated uncertainty increases from plus or minus 0.1% at very low frequencies to plus or minus 0.5% at 8 GHz. (Author)
