I doubled my Austron 1250A from 5 MHz to 10 MHz with 2 NPNs fed in push-pull and output in parallel with a tuned circuit. Before buffering it with an LH0063, I fed the signal through a 10 MHz crystal, purchased at a local surplus electronics store for $0.95. The 2nd harmonic is about 70 dB down.

HI

Actually there are three different approaches to the “double 5 MHz” question. 

Roughly 99.99% of all doubler / tripler OCXO’s out there do the trick with a simple single transistor stage and a  tuned tank. Follow it up with a tuned single transistor output amp. Cheap, easy, not very fancy, gets people mad when mentioned. It works plenty good enough. The basic design approach dates back to tube based multipliers done in the 1920’s. Just about any transmitter design textbook from 1930 through 1960 has design charts and tube based examples.
