Abstract

We present three tests for evaluating the agreement between measurements taken in a reverberation chamber and the expected results given by simple statistical models. We then apply these tests to a chamber that is known to be sub-optimal. We also give recommendtions on when the data indicate that a chamber might need to be modified, as well as methods of determining if deviations from optimal performance might be due to the characteristics of the instrumentation connected to the chamber, and not the chamber itself.
