Telettra H17 (12GHz) - cheese-clock type radio link
Useful box for beacons
100MHz osc and tripler to 600MHz, tripler to 2GHz - this is perhaps not so interesting since it is low power and rather old.
Circulator with N connectors on 2GHz, tripler to 6GHz where the signal is splitted into two parts > ufb tripler!
one doubler to 12GHz - amplitude modulated for ASK-type PCM signal, perhaps not so interesting, R70 to R120 waveguide
another doubler to 12GHz for receiver, also not so interesting.
Normally Telettra seems to build good waveguide units which solve some problems amateur should be careful to copy,
like combination of coaxcable to waveguide technique, so it is just to install some higher power diodes for use today.

Telettra H25 7.7GHz 120channel analogue radio link
the only interesting part is the 2GHz exciter exciter, perhaps for 13cm packet radio or ATV? But it is an external phase modulator.
