in a general case you should know if yhe target is placed in far field, near field or in the "very" near field (induction rather radiated).
For the target in near or far field illuminated by the main lobe (boresight direction) the gain of the transmit antenna is NOT important.
The 1st approssimation is to (...)

Two equal power signals summing together linearly will indicate as 3 dB higher.
If you have two sources, and are radiating them and tying to measure 1 meter away, yes there can be higher and lower indications as you move the receiving power meter around. It is most likely because of the geometry of the two antennas, or reflections from nearby o

You can manage the problem by using tuner-IF section of a TV receiver. It has I2C for channel selection and IF section with video and sound demodulators. IF amplifier-demodulator chip has AGC pin which gives a voltage proportional to antenna signal and it can be used for signal level measurements.

Somebody say SAR is proportional to antenna gain and pattern.
But antenna gain is from far field measurement.
Therefore, I think SAR can be reduced even using a larger gain antenna.

If you want to measure the input impedance (S11) of the dipole, you'll have to use (or design) a balun. The dipole is a balanced antenna and cannot be measured as a single-ended device, e.g. a resistor, etc. Once the balun is ready, the "easiest" way is to design a TRL calibration kit and enter its data into the network analyzer.

The return loss measures the reflected wave to the incident wave, that is RL = -20 log(Γ). So, a return loss of -10 dB means that the reflected wave is 10 dB lower than the incident wave. This is approximately equal to a reflection coefficient of 0.3, so 30% of the incident wave is wasted. Observe that this is for a voltage or a current wave,
