Abstract: The employment of different instruments for radon continuous measurements within the Italian Radon mOnitoring Network (IRON), mostly INGV, Algade AER and Airthings Corentium instruments, requires a uniform characterization and calibration protocol for the results to be comparable in a rigorous way. A 56 L stainless steel radon chamber with a sensitivity of 0.95 ± 0.01 Bq m-3 per pulse h-1 has been used and validation of Algade AER, Airthings Corentium and Durridge RAD7 radon monitors equipped with solid-state detectors operated at different absolute humidity values has been performed, extending their operative range. Robustness to atmospheric electromagnetic phenomena of INGV and Algade AER instruments has been investigated and, for the former instrument, improved.
