Great report as usual from you, but as I try to visualize the test circuit in my mind a question arises.
Did you use the 100 ohm resistor as the output load for this circuit or did you couple the signal from the collector through the ell network to the load as you previously described? From your description the RF signal was bypassed to gnd. before reaching the 100 ohm resistor and the resistor was not the load, but I wanted to be certain I got this right.
Thanks again for your work and for your report.
