Re: More Microwave Modulation Musings

Hi Bob.

Take a listen to your oven first.

It's not just 50 or 60 Hz wide.   It's tens of megahertz wide with QRM peaks 
every 50 or 60Hz.

I don't really understand magentrons but maybe if you add a large capacitor 
to the supply?  Or maybe not as that could increase the supply Voltage.  Or 
possibly a good filter...........Anyway you make a good observation, where 
else could you get a 800W output device for about $50  (replacement tube cost)

Anyway my point is that I can hear microwave ovens 'transmitting on 2450' on 
my AO-40 receivers.
