Re: magnetrons as diodes
I think it would work, and wouldn't heat up that much either
(I don't think), since those magnetrons can handle alot of power.

I havnt really posted anything on the list before but i have been reading
it for a while,
I was just wondering if the magnetrons out of microwave ovens could be
used as HV diodes, if you removed the magnets to stop microwave
generation. and used the filament winding on a MOT for filament
If any on has tried this before i would love to know....i supose they
would quickly overheat though?
I was thinking it would be a good alternative to HV silicone diodes in a
voltage doubler circuit (for a dual MOT supply----it keeps blowing
Any comments much apreciated,
