I have decided to build up some IF strips. I've never done this. I would like to see a discussion r.e. choice of transistor (what, aside from Ft determines a good candidate?), and I would like some recommendations of various types (i.e., some BJTs, some mosfets, or other types) so I can look up their specs, and maybe buy some.
Oh, and if there are other comments r.e. IF Amps, I'm interested. Also feel free to PM me at WB5EMX@ARRL.net
Thanks, Bob, WB5EMX

From what I've heard, you ideally want vintage junk box transistors, as their are a lot of counterfeits on today's market. Alternately, you may want to buy in quantity from a reputable electronics distributor.

Sometimes distributors will have great deals on parts they are closing out because they are no longer suitable for use in new designs.
