Quarter-wave switched oscillators (SWOs) are an important technology for the generation of high-power mesoband waveforms. The operation of these SWOs has been discussed for the past several years, but a detailed discussion of the design of these sources for particular waveforms has been lacking. In this paper, we relate several important parameters such as gap spacing, oscillator shape, and antenna to the properties of the radiated waveform.
