WR-229 covers 3.3 to 4.9 GHz. I run WR-229 flex out to the CP feed for 3400 MHz. Not sure why you need a w/g switch unless you are using linear polarity. All of us on 3400 MHz use cp.
Hope this helps.

I've recently become in possession of a WR229 waveguide switch. The specification states a frequency coverage of 5.85-8.2GHz with a low cutoff frequency of 2.57GHz. I was hoping that it will be possible to utilize this switch on 9cm band EME. I'm looking for confirmation of
WR229 to be suitable on 9cm band. Is anyone using it and what are the shortcomings, if any?
