An approximate method has been developed for determining the shape and density of the spokes of electronic space charge when large RF potentials exist in the magnetron. With the estimation of space-charge configuration which this method makes possible, induced current theory and knowledge of the magnetron electrode geometry and external circuit can be applied to the calculation of frequency characteristics. These characteristics relate frequency to operating anode potential and anode current and are defined as frequency pushing or voltage tuning characteristics. Relatively simple equations for these characteristics are presented. Calculated characteristics for typical values of the variables of magnetron design are presented. The correspondence of the results of the theory with experimental data is discussed very briefly.
