The autocorrelation function c(x) of level velocities is studied experimentally. The measurements were performed for microwave networks simulating quantum graphs. One and two ports measurements of the scattering matrix Ŝ necessary for determining c(x) were realized for the networks possessing 5 and 6 vertices, respectively. The network with six vertices was fully connected. In the case of the networks with five vertices, additionally to the fully connected configuration, we measured the networks without the bond connecting input/output vertices. The obtained experimental results besides the autocorrelation function of level velocities, also the nearest-neighbor spacing distribution and parametric velocities distribution are compared to the predictions of random matrix theory and numerical results.
