[time-nuts] Trimble Thunderbolt, any easy way to create 500 MHz reference from one?

If easy means a temporary lashup, takes but one piece of gear. The Ballantine 
6130A time mark generator takes in 10 MHz, produces from it a synchronous 1Hz to 
500MHz selectable in 1-2-5 steps. I've not tested mine for phase noise, probably 
not the best performer... but for $35 not a big concern, given my needs. 
Shameless plug: I'll have another one for sale at the Dayton Hamvention, flea 
market space 1901. There will be other Time Nuts in residence at 1901 as well.

Is there any fairly easy way to multiply the output of a Thunderbolt to
have a 500MHz reference at about 4dBm? Thanks.
