In order to investigate the complex relative dielectric constant of different materials over a frequency range of 50MHz to 3 GHz a setup has been built that allows rfmeasurements in a climate chamber. Within this chamber the temperature and humidity can be changed and be measured by accurate sensors. The construction of the rf-part of the setup has been made with an outer cylindrical shell that allows climate interactions through its large orifices. Methods for calculating the complex relative
