The density and diameter of plasma obtained In the central solenoid of the fully axisymmetric ambipolar mirror trap AMBAL-M are sufficient enough for ioncyclotron heating using fast waves, which provides plasma heating at the axis. At present the experiment on such ICR heating of the solenoid plasma is under preparation. The heating will be carried out two semiloop antennas installed in the end of the solenoid. For protection from the impact of the edge plasma, the antennas are equipped with Faraday shields and graphite limiters with slanted slits.
