Jo finished the machining of a 24 GHz cavity today.
Look at this wonderful piece. We will be able to make a test soon.

As a professional machinist I would polish the life out of that cavity. It looks nice but I think the finish of the copper sheets used in all previous experiments had a very fine surface finish. You can see visible ridges in this cavity. Get out the stones, emery, and compound and make that thing a mirror.

Are you expecting similar thrust levels from the 25 GHz cavity as from the standard 2.5 GHz setup?
