I am looking for the part number or manufacturer of a block down converter to down convert from 13-75 - 14.5 Ghz to 950-1700 MHz (L-band). Input should be waveguide and output F-type connector. This is for monitoring purposes on TX Ku-band.

Have a look at

Also try searching for "loop test translator" and "test loop translator", either new or second hand. 
Companies to consider:  MITEQ, Scientific Atlanta, Novella, Sematron, Advantech etc.

There is Ku band model here:

Also one on eBay.

Check it will work down to 13.75 GHz as some only do 14-14.5 GHz.

Best regards, Eric.
