The following are PDF files of scanned articles that appeared in the former Ham Radio magazine during the 1970-1980's. The author of these three articles is Fred Merry W2GN, who refined K2RIW's original stripline amplifier designs and produced this series of amplifiers commercially under the name ARCOS. Many of these are still in use today. TNX to Warren Walsh K2BM for making these files available.
