With a 1V p-p sort of output, a simple matching network will get you into the 4 to 6V p-p range.
Drive that into a 5V compatible CMOS gate and move on …. If you have a super hot output, put 
a 3 db pad on it.

It doesn't have to have stunning performance: think breadboard, PIC, Arduino sort of stuff. I was looking for something in a PDIP-8 package; the same as all the picDIV or picPET chips I use. That's why older parts like µA9637 / DS9637 came to mind.
