Look into making a microwave style parabolic dish. I'd say a frequency of 1.2 GHz should do you, but I have never built a HERF gun. I can say that it will NOT be cheap to get the thing to 5 KW. You parabolic dish will have gain [though I'm not sure how much] and that should allow you to run about 1000 watts in and have an effective radiated strength of 8000 watts. This is just assuming 12db gain. You need to get a high quality coax like heliax. You'll also most likely need an amplifier. It will not be cheap.
