A backward-wave oscillator which is electronically tuned over a five to one frequency range is described. Oscillations were observed from 2,600 to 13,300 megacycles with power output up to 50 mw. Equations for starting current and efficiency are derived and compared to experimental results. Other aspects of backward-wave oscillators are also discussed.
