We present some results of our research of echoless characteristics of the new compact antenna range developed at the Yuzhnoe State Design Office named after M.K. Yangel for experimental investigation of radio-electronic and radiating devices of space vehicles for the super high frequency band. We give our results of independent research of separate parts of radio absorbing covering of the chamber as well as some results of complex research of the levels of the reflected electromagnetic field inside the compact antenna range.
