The microwave properties of blue bronze were studied in the temperature range of 77-300 K. The relaxation of thermal quench induced metastable states and the influence of a d.c. bias electric field were investigated by a simultaneous measurement of the d.c. and microwave conductivities at 77 K. The microwave conductivity at 77 K is determined by the collective excitation of the charge density wave. We found no thermal or electric history dependence nor any effect of the bias d.c. field on microwave conductivity. The results are discussed in relation with recent observations on collective charge density wave response.
