Recently developed germanium planar junction field-effect transistors are described, with emphasis on VHF characteristics. Broadcast-band FM tuner design is discussed with respect to gain, stability, spurious response rejection, large signal handling capability, noise performance, and AGC characteristics. Practical circuits are presented.
