We present the results of experimental studies of microwave irregular networks and a three dimensional microwave rough cavity in the presence of absorption. Microwave networks are also analyzed numerically. Microwave networks simulate one dimensional quantum graphs. The networks consist of coaxial cables connected by joints and attenuators to control absorption. Three dimensional microwave rough cavities have no formal analog in quantum 3D systems. However, some statistical properties of their spectra such as the level spacing distribution confirms that they belong to the wave chaotic systems. Absorption of the cavity was changed by using a foam microwave absorber.
