    If so, look here:

    From what I saw when your eggs were hatching (on the chick cam) I have the same themometer, what do you keep yours reading?

    99.5F

    I have a forced air incubator, and the temp remains decently stable.

    Calibrate simply means to check that it is accurate. The post I linked tells you one method.
