Modern relativistic pulse-power plasma microwave sources alflow one to reach the top power about hundred of megawatts in the millimeter wavelength range, and several gigawatts in a centimeter one with an optimal efficiency of the order of 10 - 15%. The plasma microwave sources occur to the very easily tunable in a wide frequency range by the simple variation of plasma density and is possible to be realized as narrow-band regine of monochromatic wave generation sas well as a very wide - band noise regine with Dw/ w=1. Below possible applications of such a type microwave sources for the location of "sthealth" systems and destruction of radio-receivers and their elements are discussed.
