Here's a photo of the old Minicircuits MAR-6 amplifier which I built ages ago.
The actual amplifier is the little black dot in the middle. The p.c.b. is etched with a hacksaw. I used a junior hacksaw to cut gaps in the copper. The width of the strips do approximate to 50 ohm stripline. It may be crude but it worked well enough to receive TV pictures from G6EXU about 7 miles away, using a modified Amstrad SRX100 Satellite receiver. 73 Hugh
