  1. Sorry, That’s not frequency multiplication, that’s just filtering out harmonics from a pulse train. The tank circuit acts like a 800 kHz bandpass filter. True frequency multiplication will allow *any* output frequency, not just the LC resonant frequency, and typically requires nonlinearity.

    The right way to look at this is in the frequency domain.
