͑Presented on 19 June 2000͒ Using a full wave solution, the O-X-EBW mode conversion is examined for density and magnetic profiles in MAST. The effects of magnetic shear and the sharp density pedestal for H-mode operation are considered with an eye to understanding both electron cyclotron emission ͑ECE͒ and electron cyclotron resonance heating ͑ECRH͒.
