Re: microwave oven test



Bob,
It is an effective test at 2.4 GHz the frequency of the microwave ovens. 
Suggest you put in a cup of water to load the oven and palce the material 
beside side it  2 " away. This will protect the Magnetron Tube from working 
unloaded. Materials like teflon are good and ABS which has some carbon in it 
is bad. Everything else is in between.
