I have been playing with some filters and thinking about building a 60 meter receiver.

At the RF input , I am planning on a simple half wave lowpass filter (my image will be at 15 Mhz) with a gain stage and then a bandpass filter - likely coupled resonators or a 5 pole BP filter with a resistive pad before the mixer.

Anyone have a comment on whether a 2n5179 or similar class a amp or a J310 GG amp would be best. Am I going too far by using the gain stage at 5.3 Mhz?
