[sdiy] Ge transistor tester weird results

When I have tested Ge-transistors for fuzz pedals, I've used R.G. Keen's
circuit for testing leakage and hFe.
I let the transistor cool down from the warmth of my fingers handling them
before reading the values since small temperature changes have a huge
impact on leakage and hFe.
