Is this something you or your microwave buddies might be interested in?

Advertised as a 19.2 GHz satellite transceiver, the text with the picture says:
"We bought this from a satellite communications product company (along with
a lot of other microwave goodies) and thought it was almost a work of
modern sculpture. It seems to be at least a transmitter, but probably a
receiver as well. Among the various interconnected modules are: 310 MHz
bandpass filter, 19.21 - 19.70 GHz Power Amplifier, 1320 MHz
Down-Converter, Low-Noise Amplifier, Power Distribution and conversion,
Ferrocom isolators, etc. Start your own satellite station! $395.00"
