Yes, I do, as does several other engineers and technicians that frequent this site. By your question it is obvious that you do not know what you are doing. A radio transmitter can have voltages and currents that can kill you, and RF energy that can burn you from the inside out, which it can do very quickly, and without your notice until it is to late. You need to understand electronics, and those areas of electronics that deal specifically with RF energy. What you want to do is not like lighting up a LED with a double A battery.
IF you are really serious, the first thing you need to know is that IF your transmitter radiates it's signal then you could be interfering with other services for which "I didn't know" is not an excuse, and the FCC will hold you responsible for that interference. Still want to play, Ramsey Electronics would be a good place to get a low power transmitter to build as a kit. They may, however, ask if you are licensed to operate such a transmitter, and if not, may not sell it to you. If they do, it's operation is on your head. As for the power you need to ignite the water, which I doubt is possible anyway, you'll need lots of watts, more than even most amateur transmitters could produce. Before you get into this, you really need to talk to the FCC about what they would require to keep your experiments off the air, and you out of jail, and or looking at trying to find several thousands of dollars to pay their fines. Good luck, don't get cooked.
