The purpose of this paper is the investigation of the main Gunn diode oscillator characteristics with a hemispherical dielectric resonator which is shielded by a metal cylinder. The frequency, output power and electronic tuning of frequency, the steepness of which allows one to estimate the frequency stability in relation to the parasitic change of the Gunn diode voltage, and their comparative analysis with the characteristics of generation in a similar open dielectric resonator.
