The higher order modes (HOMs) of RF cavities at the Pohang Light Source (PLS) storage ring cause longitudinal coupled bunch mode instabilities. A longitudinal feedback system (LFS) is introduced to cure these instabilities. As a key component of the LFS, there is a single-ridged waveguide-overloaded cavity for a longitudinal bunch-by-bunch LFS kicker. Since the RF frequency is 500 MHz, the bandwidth of this kicker should be wider than 250 MHz to damp any coupled bunch mode. Also, a higher shunt impedance of the kicker is selected to use a lower power amplifier. One aluminum kicker is fabricated, and the bandwidth, HOMs, and the shunt impedance of the kicker are measured with a network analyzer. This kicker has several different features from the LFS kicker for DAΦNE. First of all, there are four input/output ports to obtain a wider bandwidth. Second, there is a nose cone to obtain a higher shunt impedance. Third, the symmetric frequency response of the shunt impedance around the central frequency is provided. Finally, low beam coupling power (4 W per port at 400 mA) is obtained. According to the simulation result by the high frequency structure simulator (HFSS) code, we obtained the high shunt impedance of 621.3 Ω (transit time factor considered value) and the wide bandwidth of 255 MHz. These are compared with the measured result
