Abstract : A VMS-1104 coaxial magnetron was constructed and evaluated. The SPN-43 radar transmitter cabinet was modified to accept this tube; satisfactory operation of the tube and modification kit in an SPN-43 system was demonstrated at a Navy test facility. An additional VMS-1104 tube and spare vacuum insert was constructed, tested and delivered. Spurious signal from these tubes is -50 dB or better. A VMS-1054 coaxial magnetron was constructed and evaluated. Satisfactory rf performance was demonstrated. Spurious signal generation from this tube closely approximated -60 dB. (Author)
