Microwave two-port S-parameter measurements and modeling of superconducting flux flow transistors are presented. The transistors, based on the magnetic control of flux flow in any array of high temperature superconducting weak links, exhibit significant available power gain at microwave frequencies (over 20 dB at 7-10 GHz in some devices). The input impedance is largely inductive while the output impedance is both resistive and inductive. It is shown that the characteristics of these devices are useful in numerous applications including matched amplifiers, phase shifters and active impedance convertors
