Interesting, I have often thought of doing something similar. What did you use for your wave guide, aluminum sheet? If you put a breakout point on the topload to direct it, you'd still have the problem of changing the capacitance, unless your guide was nonmetallic, in which case it'd just be more of a tube, wouldn't it?
Well, the Future Weapons episode mentioned earlier was kinda like that. I always wanted a directional EMP device...

> Every microwave oven I've had that died it was always the control board. I removed the magnatron from and power supply from one and built a 24" long wave guide. I stuck a slide of bread to the wall 20 ft across the room aim and shoot with my home made microwave gun it warmed the bread up to about 140 degrees in about 15 seconds. I shot a bird out of the tree in the back yard 40 ft away, the bird fell like a rock then came back to life and flew away. I aimed the micro wave gun at my Tesla Coil but to no effect. It would be interesting to find a way to shoot a TC streamer through the air in a beam of some sort like a microwave beam or laser beam or some other beam.
