Abstract : A times-six multiplier development study was made in an effort to facilitate efficient frequency conversion from the 215- to 260-MHz telemetry band to the new 1435- to 1535-MHz telemetry band. Such a multiplier would enable use of gun-rugged crystal-controlled oscillators to provide stable transmitter capabilities at L-band. A stripline, times-six multiplier was developed using a special gun-rugged step recovery diode in the shunt mode. An efficiency of 39 percent was achieved at 1440 MHz with output powers as high as 3 W attainable at this efficiency level. The physical construction is readily adaptable to the high-shock environments of artillery telemetry. (Author)
