This Receive Only 23cm 1200MHz Pre-amplifier is suitable for the 1240 to 1300MHz band, and can be easily re-tuned for use at 1420 or 1540MHz.  The design is essentially broadband, and is a dual stage high gain amplifier that uses a low noise CE3512K2 HJ Fet followed by a PSA-0012 MMIC providing a very low noise figure.  An on board 1100MHz high pass filter is used to reduce signals below 1000MHz including cellular 900MHz and 400MHz signals.  The pre-amplifier incorporates integrated power supply decoupling so that power can be fed to the pre-amplifier via the coaxial cable. The pre-amplifier is suitable for FM and SSB applications including Satellite and ATV reception, and versions are also available for 1420 and 1540MHz.
