A new reverberation chamber with varying angles between wall, floor and ceiling and with vibrating walls is used for in-situ testing of a large radar antenna system. Inside this Vibrating Intrinsic Reverberation Chamber (VIRC) a diffuse, statistically uniform electromagnetic field is created without the use of a mechanical, rotating, mode stirrer. This chamber results in a better homogeneity and increased field strength compared to conventional mode stirred reverberation chambers. The experience gained with this VIRC and results obtained using the VIRC for in-situ electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing will be discussed.
