A comparison is made between the two standard methods to characterise the Quiet Zone in a CATR and the applicability to mm-wave frequencies. The aspects considered are positioner accuracy requirements, dynamic range and measurement times. Typical numbers are given for the ESTEC ranges as representative examples.
