About time I reused the handy little gain block. Unconditionally stable the data sheet says, +35dB 1-200 MHz too. I was planning on putting up a tinplate divider between input and output, but it does indeed seem to be stable without one. The 28 volts operating voltage is derived from an eBay XL6009 step-up converter board, available at £5.40 for 4 delivered. Additional filtering at the output was added to keep the nasties out of the amp. The heat sink came from a defunct 5.8GHz drone transmitter along with the little fan, running off a sub regulator at 3.3 volts. Just about keeps things cool as the amp is I suspect heavily biased for linear operation. It certainly produced a clean signal when driven from my MFJ as a test. A couple of SMA sockets, some standoffs and a grommet, along with a nice blue LED and on/off switch complete the gain block. I'll try feeding it with some DATV tomorrow as I check over the VHF contingent of my station.
