I want to look up some history about what it was used for.


Here are more photos.

    $\begingroup$ I've edited your question to embed the images — this is because questions should (ideally) be meaningful without needing to follow links to other sites, which could change or break and are not as quick to read. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Reid AG6YO Dec 11 '19 at 3:58

The construction does not look appropriate for military service. Coast guard, Civil Aviation, emergency services or industry looks more likely. Photographs of the interior may yield more clues. A fixed squelch control may be a clue this was designed for VHF or UHF. It was not common to totally enclose radio equipment without ventilation so this may only contain the remote control circuit.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm inclined to agree, except this is painted OD (olive drab). $\endgroup$ – Mike Waters Dec 10 '19 at 20:22
