The paper presents models and measurements of linear antenna input impedance in resonant cavities at high frequencies. Results are presented for both the case where the cavity is undermoded (modes with separate and discrete spectra) as well as the overmoded case (modes with overlapping spectra). A modal series is constructed and analyzed to determine the impedance statistical distribution. Both electrically small as well as electrically longer resonant and wall mounted antennas are analyzed. Measurements in a large mode stirred chamber cavity are compared with calculations. Finally, a method based on power arguments is given, yielding simple formulas for the impedance distribution.
