Hi,  Gunn diodes idea sound like an interesting experiment.  For the moment I won't be able to as I don't have the time, but I'll definitely keep this idea in mind.   Thanks for sharing it!
PS. Always too busy, never enough time. Perhaps it's why messing with clocks..?

Hi, if its of any help I (still) have a box of goodies including some 10 and 22 GHz Gunnplexers. would the diodes be of any use?

The RX (IIRC its a varactor) diode is structurally very similar to an SRD,  maybe possible to adapt it if as I expect the resonance is tuned to near 6 GHz by "cooking" it under controlled conditions.
If its a close harmonic the diode might pull fine.

I think the parameters would need tuning but I have four (!) of them and some other bits which you are welcome to test.
