Hi everyone,
        i started building the output section a 2N2/40. I have the pads
installed for the finals and output filter. They are soldered to the
board
since I don't have any suitable glue. I am planning to put this in an
Altoids
box and use it as an outboard RF amp, and to get a feel for the
"Manhattan"
technique. I have some questions about some of the parts.

Does anyone know why .2uF caps were used all over? did Jim have a whole
bunch that needed to be used, or are they there for a better reason?

In the output filter, Silver mica caps are used, as they are in several
other
designs. Why is this? Would NP0's work? (I don't have any Silver Mica's)

Thanks for reading this.
