Waveguide-based combining microwave beams is an attractive technique for enhancing the output capacities of narrow-band high power microwave devices. A specific T-junction combiner is designed for combining the X/X band microwave beams, and the detailed combining method and experimental results are presented. In the experiments, two microwave sources which can generate gigawatt level microwaves are driven by a single accelerator simultaneously, and their operation frequencies are 9.41 and 9.60 GHz, respectively. The two microwave beams with durations of about 35 ns have been successfully combined, and no breakdown phenomenon occurs.
