Data on the summation of signals from two synchronously operating resonant microwave (3-cm) compressors with oversized cavities are described. The energy was extracted with interference switches. The summation was performed in a waveguide tee and a 3-dB three-slot bridge. For a signal duration of ∼ 30 ns at a level of 0.5, a peak power of ∼ 1 MW, and an efficiency of ∼ 30%, a gain was found to approach ∼ 11 dB.
