The +60 dBm IP3 device will be in a 12 volt environment.

This already puts it in the 56dbm output intercept. i suspect that this can be even higher but for the driver chain. the circuit is in the emrfd's pictures at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/emrfd/photos/albums/646547507- f 11487 2015-08-10 18:32:07 kb1gmx Re: R.E +60 dBm IP3 - forgot to mention, 12 volt system Looked at the picture...I hope this is a drawing error. The gate of the RD16 is not returned to a bias source or ground.When I've actually made that error it either worked and sometimes not or crowbars the power supply.Allison 11488 2015-08-10 20:32:48 Ashhar Farhan Re: R.E +60 dBm IP3 - forgot to mention, 12 volt system oh, yeah i didn't capture that one. the bias is supplied through a 10k resistor reading off a pot that goes from 0-5v, regulated and bypassed at RF and AF.- f 11490 2015-08-11 06:01:24 bobtbobbo Re: R.E +60 dBm IP3 - forgot to mention, 12 volt system What bias current do you have your RD16HHF01 set for in this circuit, Ashhar?

i used 600 ma. the critical stage is the driver. if you have cascade.exe from th3 EMRFD then play with it by simulating a power chain.
