The two main opposing SiO maser polarisation theories can be tested by comparing the circular polarisation of the v=1 J=1-0 and v=1 J=2-1 SiO maser lines. This requires accurate measurements of the circular polarisation. The spectral line VLBI amplitude calibration method is investigated in light of this requirement.
