Elecraft K2 LED Indicators Mod

This is a very cool mod for the K2.   Not too difficult a project and when it was finished I had LED indication for CW zero beat, split frequency operation, transmit activated, and when the receive antenna is selcted.   I used instructions from IK1PMR's website.   The schematic can be downloaded here.

Front panel removed and components, wiring and LEDs installed... Zero beat mod not yet installed at this point.   I put that in much later... and yet has been the most useful.
