I have 2 identical launchers and need 2 identical waveguide to coax adapters (all W340) I need 2 adapters to make dielectric measurements using a network analyser at 2.4 GHz. The retailer claims 10 weeks lead time for the adapters, so I thought I'd make them IF you guys say there wasn't anything wrong with that. [I still don't know the best radiator (dipole) to employ in the adapater.] .... Now you say why 10 weeks? Because these were high power waveguide to coax adapters and I was going to use them for double duty (measuring at low power and heating with high power). I was going to put an N fitting on an aluminum plate and bolt it where the magnetron goes. Bad idea?
