In this project the steps taken toward the characterization, calibration and testing of two spectroscopy stations are presented. The first one is suitable for alpha spectroscopy, consisting of a large-window silicon surface  barrier detector (SSB), a goniometric arm and a movable multiple source-holder inside a dark vacuum chamber. The second station contains two small-size, thin-window NaI(Tl) scintillators, and it is suitable for low-γ ray spectroscopy.
