      The Field Effect Transistor (FET) is revolutionizing microwave communications with both its low noise performance and high dynamic range. This paper emphasizes developed amplifier hardware available today for both ground and satellite applications. The focus is on the noise figures and output powers available from 4 to 15 GHz.
