Cam and Dick's Kortge Scratch Built 2N2-40

A couple of years ago, Cam Hartford, N6GA, left us and we still remain saddened at his passing. In the wake of his departure, Dick Palmer, WB6JDH, and I and a couple of other friends of Cam helped to "parse" the ham radio component of his estate. In that effort, Dick came across a remnant of Cam's industry, a partially built Jim Kortge 2N2-40.

Dick -- ever the industrious breather-of-life-into-things ham that he is --  completed it and got it working. He then thoughtfully gifted me with it for which I am very grateful. This has always been on my bucket list to build one of these and Dick's thoughtfulness has not displaced that project. And it certainly makes life easier that I have a working edition of that radio to guide me. 

Anyway, here are some pics for your edification.
