We present an initial test of a new type of a pre-bunched beam pumped free electron maser based on Stimulated Coherent Diffraction Radiation (SCDR) generated in an open resonator. A fast Schottky Barrier Diode (time response <1ns) has enabled us to investigate the properties of the radiation stored in the cavity as well as the intrinsic properties of the cavity itself. We observed a turn-by-turn SCDR generated by a multibunch beam. When the cavity length was exactly a half of the bunch spacing a clear resonance was observed. Moreover, turn-by-turn measurements revealed the cavity quality factor of 72.88, which was rather high for an open resonator in the wavelength range of 3-5 mm. An exponential growth of the photon intensity as a function of the number of bunches was also demonstrated.
