The paper reports on ITER-relevant ICRF physics investigated on JET in 2003 and early 2004: minority heating of (3)He and D in H-plasmas, minority heating of tritium in D, investigations of finite Lamor radius effects on the RF-induced high-energy tails, fast wave heating and current drive, and new results on the heating efficiency of ICRF antennas. ELM studies using fast RF measurements, experimental demonstration of a new ELM-tolerant antenna matching scheme, and technical enhancements planne don the JET ICRF system for 2005, themselves likewise strongly driven by the preparation for ITER are also summarised.
