 Two test fixtures are needed for the anechoic chamber. By having three-degrees of freedom (i.e., roll, azimuth, and polarization) an antenna pattern can be generated associated with any polarization or polarization plane. However, to make a precise measurement, it is  imperative that the UUT and the feed antenna be bore-sight aligned and be true relative to plumb and the horizontal plane.
