It’s hard to imagine any active ham between the late 1940s and the 1980s that did not know about World Radio Labs and Leo Myerson, W0GFQ.

And I’ll bet that half of them sent for his catalog and bought something from him at one time or the other. His advertising usually had a photo of him or his likeness on it. He was well known.
