This is a pretty rare phone. Was lucky to find it, fully complete & in very good condition.
I also have all the original documents for it. Owners manual, sales brochure, and installation & test documents.
The phone still powers up and works fine with my test set.
Has a nice green fluorescent display that has sadly now died since first powering it up, before I could take photos.
EF Johnson were one of the first 3 suppliers of AMPS phones back in the start of it all, along with Motorola & Oki.
They only made cellular phones for about 2 years, then got out of it.
Some interesting features of this phone are :-
- Uses a standard telephone handset, only cellular phone I know of that has this sort of handset.
- The keypad is not backlit at all, not so good for night time !
- Very large & heavy transceiver unit, biggest one I have so far.
Anyway, hope you like it.
Cheers, Chris.

One other thing about this phone, it gives you dial tone when the handset is lifted, if it has a valid signal.
I have now got the full service manual for this phone on the way, will try & get the display working again.
