Hi!on only BJT lines.
A good BJT can be excellent but most BJT designs are aimed at
high IP amplifiers. I've built one radio that used them MRF5xx
series in a norton push pull config with IP in the +35dbm range.
Nice but 100mA for the RF amp is high power drain for a portable.
At 6m a cascode connected pair of MPF102 jfets will work very well
with a good noise figure. I'm testig that to see if I'll use it.
The appeal is common jfets, easy to find, easy substitution.
Rather than purchase them from mkt I normaly salvage them from olddefuct TV tuners. The SMD BF989 or the 2SK series works well in most
My favortie source. Also old VCRs are a good source for balun cores
and PIN diodes.
