Tests were performed at SNS in collaboration with visiting colleagues from ISIS, UK to evaluate the uncesiated beam performance of the SNS RF H ion sources. Two spare experimental sources, one with internal antenna and one with external antenna were used for the tests. The beam currents achieved with Cs-free operations accounted for about 1/3 to 1/2 of the beam currents produced with cesiated operations. ~17 mA uncesiated H current was demonstrated within the tested RF power range up to 65 kW with the internal antenna source and ~15 mA with up to 40 kW RF with the external antenna source. In Cs-free operations, the power supply for the electron dumping electrode was loaded down below its set voltage but was not too drastic to tamper the operation.
