Abstract : The patent relates to an inductive loop inserted through the cavity wall into the cavity of a cavity tuned high power oscillator. The inductive loop is terminated in a PIN diode whose characteristics, and the resulting inductive reactance presented by the loop to the cavity, are controlled by a direct current bias voltage applied across the diode. Changes in the inductive reactance of the loop changes the inductance of the cavity and hence the tuned frequency of the oscillator.
