A general experimental procedure is described for determining the linearized transfer admittances of a vortex amplifier. Flow response at the ports to a measured pressure perturbation applied to any one of them was obtained by hot wire anemometer. Self and transfer admittances were determined using a dual channel spectrum analyzer. The difficulties involved in such experiments are discussed. Measurements at two working points compare well with those predicted by the theoretical model developed in Part 1 of this paper.
