This paper gives an overview of the ongoing activities under the Antenna Measurement activity of the Antenna Centre of Excellence (ACE) network within the EU 6th framework research program. In particular, in this work an attempt is made to establish a common uncertainty estimation criteria in spherical near field and far field antenna measurement systems. The results from this activity are important instruments to verify the measurements accuracies for antenna measurement ranges as well as to investigate and evaluate possible improvements in measurement set-ups and procedures. These results will be used in the facility comparison campaigns in order to calculate a reference pattern for each of the high accuracy reference antennas (VAST 12, SATIMO SH800 and SATIMO SH2000) measured during the last 4 years by different institutions in Europe and US.
