I wouldn't use the s-meter. I'd use a receiver with the AGC disabled and look at the audio output with a PC. The PC lets you digitize the signal so you can measure in a very narrow bandwidth (helping the SNR), and is quite linear.
Just as a practical note, I ran BeaconSee (a NCDXF beacon monitoring program) for a while with an ICOM PCR-1000 receiver hooked up to a 30m band dipole a few feet off the ground. I don't recall the detection bandwidth, but it's quite narrow. You could see almost all beacons, at some time during the day.
