The high-gain, through narrowband, potential of a vane-loaded gyro-traveling wave tubes (TWT) is analyzed to suggest a two-section vane-loaded device configuration for large gains and bandwidth. The interaction structure of the device consists of a vane-loaded cylindrical waveguide divided into two sections. The lengths as well as the vane parameters and the background magnetic fields for the individual magnetic fields is predicted. The motivation is to exploit the high-gain potential of vane-loading and add the gain-frequency responses of the individual sections.
