Hold on the k2 is being powered on for the first time!

This is going to be the first time I have powered up the K2 and more or less it's the first (of many) moments of truth. There are some messages you should see when you turn the radio on for the first time.
The K2 is alive and well

There is a short time that goes by (seems like forever) and then a second message will appear if all is well.

This is the next screen you want to see. 

Now each time you turn on the K2 you are going to have the friendly greeting of........
I am in the final stages of the first alignment and test. In this section I test the Audio amplifier and tone generator, keyer, AGC threshold, S meter alignment and bargraph current test. Stay tuned as some of these test DID NOT turn out as planned. I turned to the Elecraft reflector for help.....and help they did!
