The resonance of a small spheroidal object in a large spheroidal cavity is investigated. This approximates the case of a thin needle‐like antenna in a large cavity. It is shown that this needle, if thin enough, shows marked resonant properties, in that when the cavity is tuned to a resonant frequency defined by the needle, the magnetic field on the surface of the needle is greatly enhanced. This property can be used in a practical way, in measuring surface impedance of the material of which the needle is composed: at resonance most of the loss in the cavity is located at the surface of the needle and depends on the material of which it is composed.
