The Berlin Energy Recovery Linac Project (BERLinPro) is designed to develop and demonstrate CW LINAC technology for 100-mA-class ERLs. High-current operation requires an effective damping of higher-order modes (HOMs) of the 1.3 GHz main-linac cavities. We have studied elliptical 7-cell cavities damped by on the whole five waveguides at both ends. Eigenmode computations for geometrical figures of merit show that the present design should allow successful CW linac operation at the maximum beam current of 100 mA/77 pC bunch charge. To verify the results, the external Q factors are compared to the results of S-Parameter simulations that are postprocessed by a pole-fitting technique. First results of scattering parameter measurement on a room-temperature aluminium model are discussed. An outlook presenting the possibilities of combined multi-cavity simulations is included.
