The TOP Linac (Oncological Therapy with Protons), under development by ENEA and ISS is a sequence of three pulsed (5 microseconds, 300 Hz) linear accelerators: a 7 MeV, 425 MHz RFQ+DTL (AccSys Model PL-7), a 7-65 MeV, 2998 MHz Side Coupled Drift Tube Linac (SCDTL) and a 65-200 MeV, variable energy 2998 MHz Side Coupled Linac (SCL). The first SCDTL module structure, composed by 9 DTL tanks coupled by 8 side cavities, has been built. Low power RF measurements have shown good field uniformity and stability along the axis. The structure has been tested with a 1 - 4 MW power RF. Results of low and high power tests are reported and discussed.
