Summary form only given, as follows. The area of relativistic plasma microwave electronics has recently generated renewed interest in the microwave and millimeter-wave device community. The authors have obtained experimental data demonstrating that the presence of a low-density background plasma in a relativistic backward wave oscillator leads to several beneficial effects, including enhanced interaction efficiency (40%), operation at very low and possibly zero guiding magnetic field, tunability by controlling the plasma density, a high degree of spectral purity, and operation well above the vacuum limiting current.<>
