We report the experimental implementation of a novel device for producing ultra-wide bandwidth waveforms. The device is a chaotic electronic circuit consisting of a length of coaxial cable terminated on one end with a diode and on the other with a negative resistor. We observe the dynamics of the device as the negative resistance and line length are varied. The system produces ultra-wide band chaotic oscillations with a tuneable peak frequency in the range 7-53 MHz.
