I suspected that was the case. I only worked for Ted about 4 years, but we put quite a few of them up in that time. And I know he was doing them long before I started helping.

I always wonder what happened to all the towers/antennas/rotators we installed. Hopefully most of them are still being used. I have nightmares that somebody inherited some of them and threw them out not knowing what they were..........

Also thanks to Bob M. for the lead on prop motors.

This sounds more like what I used, actually.

I worked for W6HX in Southern California in the early 1970's, and he
built prop motor systems at the time.  We built the controllers in the
S-line speaker cabinet, which is smaller than this unit and does not
have the hinged top.  This one looks like it has the 24 volt transformer
in the shack instead of on the tower.  So it's not one of those.  I wish
I could find one now (at least the prop motor).
