Experiments on peer-to-peer locking of 2 kW magnetrons are performed. These experiments verify the recently developed theory on the condition under which the two nonlinear oscillators may be locked to a common frequency. Dependent on the coupling, the frequency of oscillation when locking occurs does not necessarily lie between the free running frequencies of the two isolated, stand-alone magnetrons. Likewise, when the locking condition is violated, the beat frequency is not necessarily equal to the difference between these free running frequencies.
