Depending on band conditions and antenna efficiency {not antenna gain}, a RF 
Gain value of 60 may be too high.  With a 1/2 wave resonant antenna on 160M 
and 75M and to some extent,  I run the RF gain in the 30's.  On 10M & 12M 
more RF gain is required due to the fact the antenna captures less signal.
