Here's the AI2Q version of K8IQY's famous 2N2/40 transceiver. This 40-meter QRP CW rig uses 22 Type 2N2222 transistors, hence its name. No integrated circuits are used.

My version includes a sidetone oscillator, for a total of 24 transistors. The small chassis in the foreground is a simple SWR indicator.

The certificate attests to its existence as the ninth such rig built.

Here's a close-up of the 2N2/40's innards and front panel. The rig includes full metering, a variable crystal filter, and vari-cap tuning.

The componentry is protected by a clear Lexan cover plate.
