The Gunnplexer Cookbook (1981)

The Gunnplexer Cookbook was published in 1981 (and can be found online in PDF form, but I am not sure if it has been relased into the public domain). In 2019 we are playing with HB-100 and low noise SAT-TV LNB's rather than Gunn diodes, but I think that book contains good old wisdom that still applies nowadays. Temperature stabilization, a simple and mechanical way to estimate a frequency at 10 GHz (useful for HB-100 transmitters too) as well as other pearls to enrich one's knowledge of microwave bands.

Have a look at it if you are interested in GHz operations.
