A novel theoretical feasibility study to reverberate a large metallic chamber is proposed. The method is based on the displacement of a radiating antenna inside the chamber, and the reverberating effect is obtained by coupling the antenna current in different ways with the cavity modes. This technique eliminates mechanical rotating paddles inside the chamber and offers the advantage of a continuous-wave operation compared with the frequency stirring method. The reverberating characteristics of the proposed technique are evaluated by calculating the field statistics. The analyzed situation concerns a real antenna, and its radiation into the reverberation chamber is modeled using Green's function of cavity. The numerical problem is solved by the method of moment. The model has been tested and is able to rigorously characterize the reverberating environment for the design and optimization of antenna configurations to be addressed in future studies.
