I have used a ADCMP580 comparator on a home etched board
with semi rigid for the outputs. This is what I got from it:
I have also experimented with BAT15 Schottky limiters to get less rise
time at the cost of less amplitude.
That has been replaced by a 54754A differential TDR in the mean time :-)
The scope knows its own risetimes and can calculate them away, at least
BNC and 40 ps rise time don't go together well.
