We report on field-induced variations of the microwave surface resistance at 9.6 GHz of Ba0.6K0.4BiO3 crystals. Energy losses have been investigated as a function of the static magnetic field in the range of temperatures 4.2 K \(\div T_c\). By analyzing the experimental results in the framework of the Coffey and Clem model we determine the temperature dependence of the first-penetration field, upper critical field and depinning frequency. The results show that the pinning energy of this bismuthate superconductor is weaker than those of cuprates.
