Of the various contributors to limited repetition rates for the Booster Accelerator, the Booster RF System has often been cited as a primary factor. At the very base, it can simply be stated that the Booster RF System was never designed to accelerate beam at the sustained rates now being contemplated. The fundamental limitations have been due to RF equipment heating and lack of available power from the AC Power Distribution System. The following generally describes perceived obstacles to operating the Booster RF System at higher repetition rates. Discussion addresses both intermediate and longer term goals of the RF System operating at ~9 Hertz and then ultimately at 15 Hertz.
