Let's not forget W4KFC, who did SO2R in the 1950s with pairs of Collins
separates. (I'm lousy with Collins model numbers, but these were the big
ones, not the Ft101-sized grey models of later years.)

As I recall, he had an innovative (for the time) switching system for the
headphones, keyer, amps and mics. I still remember the pic of his station.
If anyone wants, I can probably track it down.

73, kelly
