Radio frequency (RF) power is one of the most important quantities in RF metrology. An inter laboratory data comparison of RF power for the validation of a coaxial microcalorimeter has been carried out between Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB-Germany) and National Physical Laboratory India (NPLI). A coaxial thermistor mount equipped with type N connector is used for this intercomparison. The results show good agreement in measuring the effective efficiency of the coaxial thermistor mount between the two laboratories within their claimed expanded uncertainty. It confirms the equivalence of national standards for RF power in the frequency range of 100 MHz to 18 GHz.
