But IMHO a 3 dB pad and a low insertion loss filter (my four poles at 5.2 Mhz were about 0.6 dB) the intercept is probably almost the same as the hybrid-coupled pair. The only hit is 3 dB highter noise figure.
It's like everything else in life. Is a Camaro OK or do you "need" a Corvette, Porsche OK or does it HAVE to be a Ferrari, etc.
