I have a set of older Cushcraft antennas that meet that criteria: 738XB and 
22XB. Both have polarity switching but the 435 ant has the box on the rear. 
I have manuals for both.

I agree with Mike, N1JEZ.  The KLM's were the only one with the big box 
switcher on the end of the 440 boom.  The 144 unit was not covered but an 
circuit board with lots of exposed phasing wires.

In fact looks exactly like mine except mine have the F9FT in the middle of 
boom.  If you need copies of the  KLM manuals let me know .....
