	David,
		A very interesting document particularly with the proposed PRIMARY
Amateur allocation 75.875-76.000 GHz.

	To put the overall (radiated) power limit in perpective, it is 1 watt
maximum into a well illuminated , very SMOOTH, nominal 3ft dish; a
beamwidth of about 0.3 degree. 

	Starting with an X-band source, a varactor doubler followed by a varactor
tripler should do the job. 

	(Remember when we used varactor multipliers for the 70cm and 23cm bands?)
