I would also make sure that you have a network analyzer and the other
equipment available to complete a thorough investigation and analysis of
your rf amp project. Please make sure that your advisor is looking out
for your welfare in this regard. RF amps aren't gigantic undertakings,
but they do require some skill-building and finese. One thing that you
may find the hard way is that ground is not necessarily ground (or is it
"earth is not necessarily earth" in English rather than American English
:-)). Although not simple, this project should prove to be informative
and even fun. None-the-less, good luck.
Another thought: If you are making a class A amp, maybe you should
consider including IMD measurements, etc in the final report. Other neat
things spring to mind, but let's not go overboard.
