A three-wave free-electron laser (FEL) was operated with a powerful 8.4-GHz electromagnetic pump wave replacing the usual magnetostatic wiggler. The presence of a uniform axial magnetic field B0 produced cyclotron-harmonic idler waves. Peaks in the emission spectrum corresponding to cyclotron harmonics were observed covering a frequency range from 16.5 to 130 GHz. The frequency spectrum of this novel FEL mechanism was tuned continuously by the variation of B0
