Re: 3.3V 435MHz power amp for cubesat

Hello Nick
With 20dB gain you may have to use two stages, but have a look at the 
Maxim MAX 2601 or 2602 for the PA stage.
The spec is "DC to microwave" (?)
30dBm output
3.6V supply
58% eff.
suggested circuit for 900MHz and 433MHz is in the data sheet.
2602 is a linear version with inbuilt biasing diode.
