We have developed a novel high gain, low noise, miniature 17/12 GHz receiver with MMIC insertion for satellite communication. This receiver has a nominal conversion gain of 60+/-0.25 dB with gain adjustment range of 60 dB and noise figure of 1.6 dB. The third order intermodulation is 32 dBc @ -50 dBm input drive level, from 17.3 to 17.8 GHz at room temperature. It has a size of 5.7×1.8×0.3", a mass of 90 gm and a DC power consumption of 2.8 Watt
