The starting current of a simple model of the backward-wave oscillator described by Kompfner and Williams has been calculated. The effect of space charge is included. The starting current I0 may be written in the form

, where V0 is the beam voltage, Z0 is the impedance of the circuit, N is the length of the oscillator in wave-lengths measured on the circuit and a0(4QC) is a dimensionless quantity which has been evaluated as a function of the space-charge parameter 4QC.
