This is very simply preamplifier module with 2N5109 transistor based on W7IUV design. You can use it as high IP preamplifier, buffer amplifier or small driver. Gain is up to 18dB and there is also build in variable ATT. You can easy set gain as high as you need! As well you can set right transistor bias with multi turn potentiometer. Two relays offer bypass switching if there is no power supply.

!Tunning
* There is nothing to tune on RF side. It is wide band amplifier.
* You only need to set right TRANSISTOR BIAS current and Gain.
** disconnect jumper JP1
** connect mA meter there (200 mA scale is fine)
** connect supply voltage you want - from 12 to 14 V
** turn the resistor trimmer R4 (BIAS) and set bias current you want - it should be from 60 to 85 mA - depends on application
** than connect jumper short back again
* With the resistor trimmer (ATT-TRIM) you can set amplifier gain as you need.
** from 0 to about 18 dB
** turn the ATT-TRIM (201)
