Seems that the low freq. end of S21 has about 10dB atten instead of the 17 dB gain.
My opinion is, that some (low freq transmission) circuit element (series capacitor, shunt inductor, etc) is the main problem, because at about 100 mhz the circuit should work, except if some above mentioned problem happens.

For high frequency RF amps (Fc> 100 mhz), the aerial is normally connected by a bit of Coaxial cable that matches the aerials impedance -in the range 50-75 ohms.

If I understand well, your design freq. is 5.5 GHz and your design is not stable in the freq range of 100 - 400 mhz.
In this case the problem freq. range is about a decade lower than the design frequency. In this case it is very easy to "place" resistors (shunt or series) to get the design stable in a manner that in practical terms the resistors

The Opamp parameters are decided by:
1. Gain - should be very high. If the gain error is expected to be around 01% or 0.01, then the gain for an N-bit DAC should atleast be 2^N*1/Gain Error. So for a 8 bit DAC, the gain should be about 2^8*100 = 128*100 = 12800 or about 80 dB. High gain would also reflect into lower input referred

you should use a capacitor in series with the 390 ohms.
Thus, you have for dc 100% feedback (dc gain of unity). Thus, the input bias of 2.5 volts is transferred also to the output. Then, notice the highpass characteristic of your circuit.

The load won't have the said impedance over the full 10 to 100 mhz range. (Near to technically impossible). You also didn't tell, if
the PA is standard 50 ohm or different.
A VWSR instrument is the best method to check the matching condition over the full frequency range.

Apart from the problem of stable loop gain addressed by LvW, you should consider that's almost useless to increase amplifier gain above the practical limits set by input noise and offset drift.
Precision OPs are designed with DC gains of 120 to 160 dB, there's little chance to improve it further by designing cascading amplifiers.

When it is stable and has sufficient S/N ratio when filtered with a 50...100 mhz wide filter, you may put it (after filtering) into a clipping circuit. If phase must be stable under varying input signal, you should use a non-voltage-saturating circuit (ECL like circuitry?). The reason for this is that propagation delay will depend on drive level.
