One of the ways to increase the generated pulses power of the microwave emission in virtual cathode systems is to make use of several devices simultaneously. To solve this problem it is necessary to investigate the virtual cathode system operation in the regime of the amplification of the electromagnetic wave from an external signal. Results of the investigation of the virtual cathode operation in presence of the external high-frequency signal are given in this work. The phase locking conditions of the high-power virtual cathode triode for the external signal have been determined. The phase locking band dependence on system and electron beam parameters have been established.
