70 cms pre-amps

Hello Group.
There have been several mails recently either reporting poor receive  signals 
on U band downlinks or asking about 70cms pre-amps.
I have been working on a general purpose PCB for a 70cm / 23cm pre-amp.  
Although this is 'work in progress'  the results on 70cm have been quite  good. If 
anyone needs some encouragement to try building a pre-amp for  themselves 
then there are some basic details at:
The ATF54143 seems very forgiving and good results can be obtained even  with 
'dead bug' construction.  - As long as you don't have too much source  
inductance and you use the resistor in the drain.
