They are not exactly "manuals", just a couple of mimeographed pages and
a schematic. I have both of these little rigs and they are
fun rigs. I lived in the next town over from Stamford, and worked one
summer for Creative. Lots of fun for a young ham! They also made
a TNS based on Don Stoner's Twin Noise Squelch design. There was a KW
Linear with 4-400s in the works, but don't remember if
it ever hit the street.
I'll dig them out and scan them to pdf for you.
