I think he is trying to say "how do I get 1 mW of power into a system with an antenna attached to the front end".

Well, you need to get another antenna, put much more than 1 mW into it, point it at your receive antenna, and somehow calibrate the mess so that 1 mW is received into the antenna's effective aperture.

If your question is what I think it is then yes, it is as simple as that.

However, biff44 did get me rethink a little. If biff44 is right, then his proposed method should be considered.
