Could someone please tell me exactly what this is? I have been told that it is an amplifier from a radio station in the 30’s or 40’s. I have been told it’s a receiver used by the military around World War 2 era.

Does anyone know what it actually is?

Thank you

Not an expert here, but .... my guess?..... transmitting amplifier, home brew, 1970's 1980's.

Its been over 30 years since I have done any repair on CB/ham items but I am wondering if it is what I was use to hearing called a linear amp for CB or ham. I think there was also items that were used to tune in and transmit between the usual frequencies but I forgot what they were called. I worked in a electronics repair shop back in the mid 80s and people would bring in linears similar to this from time to time. I think they were really popular in the mid 70s to mid 80s. I see linears pop up for sale in my area from time to time. I also remember back in late 70s a lot of the electronics hobby magazines use to have projects you could make similar to this. I seem to remember one project with dutchman in its name, I wonder if it is this item. I found one similar to yours on youtube, I didn't watch it completely but it looks like it. , probably homebuilt.
