The validity of the fast-wave and slow-wave cyclotron instabilities in the non-resonant regimes is studied via the MAGIC code. The transverse as well as the longitudinal field structure is evaluated self-consistently in the presence of electron beam. Cases under study include the CARM amplifier where the beam resonance line intersects the waveguide dispersion curve at two points. The wave behavior at frequencies between the two intersections will be examined and results will be compared with those obtain with a particle tracing code whose validity in this regime is in question.
