The operation of the Relativistic Klystron Amplifier (RKA) was extended to higher frequencies. The 5 kA, 4 cm-diameter, 0.5 MeV Intense Relativistic Electron Beam (IREB) was fully modulated at 3.5 GHz. The RF from this IREB was extracted into a coaxial transmission line, in a TEM mode, and subsequently radiated into the atmosphere through a horn sealed with a lucite vacuum window. Radiated power level of 150 Megawatts was achieved. Work is in progress on a similar RKA operating at 9.4 GHz, using a 1.4 cm-diameter electron beam.
