Well if you look closely there is some reactance at high frequency in the gate circuit to compensate for high capacitance loading at higher frequency.  Thats a real tight rope to walk though because making that broad-banded is a real trick.

The WA2EBY amp has also been simulated, including notes on what those inductor values are:

Somehow WA2EBY managed to get good performance without any switching or tuning when changing bands.

Gordeon, please have a lok on the "famous" WA2EBY amp. He is using inductors in series with teh gate-bias resistors. My explanation is that this inductor of unknown value together with the gate-souce capacitance of the IRF 510 forms a parallel resonator, i.e. cancelling out the high gate capacitance. This may be the reason why he gets a flat(er) frequency response as shown in part 2 of his paper.
