I built one, and later saw a simpler one.  Very fast, very simple.  I think my total cost was a few cents.
Google TDR DIY pulser.  One from an old magazine (Jim Williams) looks pretty good, using collector breakdown of a 2N2369.  The one I made used one IC and a few resistors.

 Hi Larry:

How does it work.
When I was working with microwave semis it was either a tunnel diode or a Step Recovery Diode.

Have Fun,
