Acoustic characterization of an anechoic wind tunnel facility at the University of Florida is presented. A previously existing and ISO 3745 validated 100 Hz anechoic chamber is upgraded to incorporate an open-jet anechoic wind tunnel facility suitable for airframe noise studies. The design and preliminary characterization results at 17 m s was initially presented in reference 1. This paper presents new acoustic characterization data with an empty test section for test section speeds up to UTS = 43 m/s. These new measurements show the overall SPL from 100 Hz
