A broadband microwave recursive filter that provides sharp transitions in the frequency domain between adjacent stop and passbands comprising a signal input node a signal output node a filter circuit connected between the signal input node and the signal output node for providing a signal flow therebetween which has a predetermined frequency bandwidth characteristic a microwave transistor circuit, with the microwave transistor circuit being band-limited to provide gain in only a restricted window of frequencies within the predetermined frequency bandwidth and connected for providing amplification to signals flowing in the filter circuit between the signal input node and the signal output node while suppressing out-of-window signals resulting from design approximations. The filter circuit includes a plurality of distributed feedback loop circuits, with each of the feedback loop circuits including the microwave transistor circuit therein, and wherein each of the feedback loop circuits has a different electrical length in relation to the other of the plurality of feedback loop circuits.
