Abstract. Design, calibration procedure, linearity tests and error analysis of microwave Dicke-type radiometers with built-in subsystem for internal calibration are presented. Special care is taken to ensure exact numerical correspondence between the values of the input and output signals. A formula for the absolute error estimation is obtained.
