Hoping someone can identify the following military radio.

enter image description here

I spotted it at the curb and decided to make it a land-fill diversion project...

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to ham.stackexchange.com! Good on you for saving something interesting from the landfill. There's no identification plate with a model or serial number on it anywhere? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The connectors on the back side are possibly also helpful for identification, so if you happen to have a photo of that too.. $\endgroup$ Aug 11 '19 at 11:09

One of the fine folks from MMRCG identified this as model R-1484/PRR-15

  • $\begingroup$ And a Google search for R-1484/PRR-15 confirms this. Thank you, and welcome to this site. :-) $\endgroup$

This is indeed a R-1484/PRR-15, also known as AN/PRR-15. Made by Zenith, circa 1969 for USMC sigint use in Viet Nam. Probably fewer than 100 made.
