A straightforward, fast, and repeatable procedure for measuring the system performance of the antennas in a MIMO system is presented. Due to the use of two connected reverberation chambers, the so called keyhole effect is observed and can be controlled. The method is possible to use for performance measurements of complete MIMO systems, and the present paper lays out the basics for making this possible.
