It's an RF generator. Should come with a set of plug-in coils.

Agree, but we need to wait for the photo's including of what is inside it, to appraise its condition etc before plugging it in.

Marcc I wont be plugging it in anytime soon. I just thought its in really nice condition and will give it a polish up. If it can be put to use then so be it.

Its a Signal Generator for calibration. That has audio so it can be modulated from within or externally. There is likely a circuit but those things are made using the same parts as are found in radios. So now it's a case of, even that it uses 22.5V / 4.5V Batteries one will need still to check it.

3 9V batteries give 27V & a couple of series diodes will knock the "on load" volts.

Beware the free download of Manuals: Malwarebytes blocks that here.
