The goal was the fabrication and delivery of a practical field transmitter with an overall efficiency of 50%; the transmitter in this case is defined as the klystron tube, focusing mechanism, and cooling system. Efficiency is defined as the rf power output divided by the sum of the power inputs to the klystron amplifier, the focusing mechanism, and the cooling system. (Modified author abstract)
