The book is a great read, even or perhaps especially if you had never heard of 
him - though even as a kid in my pre-ham days we had heard of this guys with 
big antennas down by the coast. Those rhombics were pretty awesome. And some of 
the denizens of this reflector might enjoy how he dealt with the CCRs he was up 
against (really!)

I imagine the $150 copy is signed - at least signed copies were in that price 
range when last I looked.

I have also seen copies for sale on the shelf at HRO in Anaheim, if that is any
