If you want to use one of the monolithic amps from Mini-Circuits I would go
for something better than a MAR-6, that one has the worst IM behaviour of
To compare :
I have MAV11SM (65mA) and MAR3SM (35mA) devices here if you need them.
SM = surface mount.
Dave, Graham and I used a MAR3 pre-amp in Guernsey and found it overloaded
with the large signal from Lessay. The MAV11 is rated at 60mW output and may
be a better choice if you can spare the current.
