The purpose of this program is to develop a klystron amplifier operating at 8 kMc and delivering one megawatt of CW power. The first of the multi-output tubes was tested CW. Waterload arcing hampered the testing but 500 kilowatts was observed for a brief period and operation at 350-400 kilowatts was resonably stable. Subsequently the tube was lost when an arc detector failed to fire and a window cracked. Further tube testing could not be accomplished owing to failure of the main high-voltage transformer which was not repaired at quarters end. Further analysis of power flow in extended-interaction cavities is presented. Author
