Influence of reflections on operation of gyrotrons with axial output is studied both theoretically and experimentally. By way of example the Fukui large orbit gyrotron with a permanent magnet operating in third harmonic at frequency 89 GHz is considered. In the case of strong reflection (|R|=0.6), extreme sensitivity of output power on the reflection phase is found. A qualitative agreement between theory and experiment is observed.
