Hi, all.

I built my KFL1-2 as a 12m/10m board.

I thank Stephanie VA3UXB for his suggestions on component values.

Values of components I used are as follows:

Band 1: 24.8MHz
  C1, C5   - 100
  C2, C4   - 47
  C3       - 1
  C11, C15 - 270
  C12, C14 - 33
  C13      - 2
  C21, C23 - 68
  C22      - 150
  L9, L10  - 0.26uH (T37-6 yellow core; 8turns, 16cm)
  X1       - 32.8000MHz (fundamental)

Band 2: 28.0MHz
  C6, C10  - 82
  C7, C9   - 47
  C8       - 1
  C16, C20 - 220
  C17, C19 - 33
  C18      - 2
  C24, C26 - 68
  C25      - 150
  L11, L12 - 0.26uH (T37-6 yellow core; 8turns, 16cm)
  X2       - 36.0000MHz (fundamental)

Additional modifications as Stephanie did:

I added 56-ohm in parallel with R11 (82 ohms).

In additon to above mods, I added a 0.001uF capacitor in parallel 
with R30 on the RF board.

My K1 got the output power as follows:
  24MHz = 7+ watts @ 13.8V
  28MHz = 4 watts @ 13.8V

VFO range must be "150kHz", not "80kHz".  The 12-meter begins from 
24.890MHz but K1 covers this band starting 24.800MHz.
