Is it possible to calculate the flux of some electromagnetic radiation (say, a radio wave) using other parameters?

  • $\begingroup$ I answered, but realized I might have misunderstood your question. What do you mean by the "flux" of the radiation? $\endgroup$ – The Photon Jul 1 at 2:02

If you know you're in the far field of the signal source, and you know the impedance of the transmission medium (for air or free space it's about 377 ohms), then you could measure the electric field strength of the signal and divide by the impedance to get the magnetic field strength.
