Ed lived in Colts Neck. He ran a 4 over 4 about 40 to 50 feet at least. Used nitrogen filled coax Rig was an Icom IC-551D. Can't remember what amplifier he had. Ed made 254 transmitters and 6 receivers. I have the transmitter and receiver that were used in the ad pictures plus another receiver and transmitter pair. One of the 6 receivers was destroyed many years ago. Over the years, two receivers were accounted for; last receiver was last seen in the Phoenix, AZ area. Tried to contact the owner in the early 2000's but never got a response. Ed passed in June 9,1994; http://www.uksmg.org/content/w2idz.htm I visited him several months earlier on a Sunday afternoon. He was trying to downsize a lot of homebrew stuff he had accumulated over the years. Call doesn't immediately ring a bell. Would have to check the old logs to see if I ever worked him. I still have my Clegg Venus, SS Booster, 416 Spk/PS, and Apollo cannibalized amplifier. Ed and I both worked in the same organization at Bell Laboratories in Holmdel in the 70's and early 80's.
