Abstract

We discuss practical measurement implementation issues regarding the use of a vector signal analyzer for making bit-error-rate measurements in reverberation chambers. These issues include synchronizing the transmitted and received signals in spite of time-varying path lengths created in the reverberation chamber and minimizing the receiver's loss of lock after a long-duration fade by use of a simple error correction scheme. Eliminating these receiver-specific effects facilitates study of the multipath channel created in the reverberation chamber on bit error rate.
