Abstract : Th major portion of this period was spent in background study in preparation for initial design considerations of the standard hot load source and the gas tube noise source, and in selection and purchase of 3 mm. test components. Approximately 50% of the test components were received including a klystron. The klystron will be mounted in oil to increase stability in terms of frequency and power output. A muffle furnace was purchased in which the black body radiator, a silicon carbide load, will be heated to 1000C. Initial design considerations of the gas noise tube consists of a quartz tube of 0.033 cm. inner radius using Argon at a pressure of 14 mm. of Hg. (Author)
