A new experimental procedure for the determination of cavity parameters is described. The procedure follows the basic steps described by Slater. In this method one measures the frequencies at which the voltage standing wave ratio at the input to the cavity reaches a predetermined value. The knowledge of these frequencies coupled with a determination of the state of coupling to the cavity yields the necessary information. An exposition of some pertinent theoretical points is followed by a detailed description of the experimental procedure.
