The 1360-B Microwave Oscillator was introduced in Catalog S (1965) and remained available to Catalog U (1970).

The 1360-B is an upgrade from 1360-A with improvements in amplitude and frequency stability. The oscillator uses a Type 5836 Reflex Klystron in a coaxial cavity. An interesting feature is the band switch is built into the frequency dial, with panel lamps indicating what band is in use.


  • Frequency Range: 1.7 to 4.1 GHz in two ranges
  • Accuracy: ±1% of dial reading
  • Stability: Warm-up drift is approximately 0.15% during the first hour, total drift approximately 0.25%
  • Output Power: Typically more than 100 mW above 2 GHz; Total variation in maximum output with frequency is 20 to approximately 300 mW
