This paper presents the results of simultaneous measurements of the transparency of a model smoky aerosol medium by a base meteorological visibility range (MVR) meter and a developed backscatter MVR meter that agree to within the limits of a relative error of  ~ 20%. The problems regarding the method for calibration and errors in measuring the transparency by the backscatter MVR meter are discussed.
