Building a low-energy microwave generator.

  1. Aug 17, 2003 #1
    I want to build a low-amplitude microwave generator. Nothing as strong as in real microwave ovens.

    I believe I have most of the theoretical knowledge needed, and I am willing to spend up to 200$ on materials.

    Any idea where to start? Anyone tried this himself once?

    Thanks :)

    If you find something interesting, working + build_able report :)

    I'm afraid my efforts have been in vain. Perhaps, if you (I'm no expert on ac electronics but...) built a fairly strong radio transmitter, and then tweaked the settings so they extended out beyond the radio bandwidth.

    Kinda farfetched, and maybe extremely impossible but hey, why not?!
