- An axisymmetric 2-D code to determine general spheromak equilibria has been used here to calculate flux surfaces in an oblate cylindrical flux conserver; flux surfaces determined from this numerical calculation are used as the input to a fully toroidal code (toroidal variation as e/sup in phi/) which then calculates the Alfven wave resonances as a function of frequency. The numerical results are given. Results are given for the n = 2, m approx. 2 mode, where m = 2 is the dominate poloidal mode number for the noncircular flux surfaces. This mode also displays the highest loading resistance (and, hence, energy absorption) in the ideal MHD calculation. The antenna loading resistance as a function of frequency for the n = 2, m = 2 mode is given.
