A survey was made of the problems encountered in the assembly and the operation of the equipment used for the FREMIX expt. This expt. aims at resonant ion heating in a magnetic bottle at frequencies which are the product of nonlinear mixing of e cyclotron resonance waves. The problems can be divided into 3 categories: (1) Requirements for operation of 2 klystron amplifiers: power supplies with protective equipment, steering circuitry, and cooling water. (2) Wave-guide systems: are protection, circulators, and vacuum window. (3) Construction of the plasma chamber; introduction of diagnostic tools: 4-mm interferometry, x-ray detection of escaping particles, and detection of excited radiation and mixing products (1-5 MHz; 16 GHz).
