    Aerotron 600 Military VHF Transmitter 1950's manufacture. Military grade.

    From NYPDhistory.com:
    There was a demand for portable radios that would permit officers to remain in contact with headquarters while outside their RMP’s. Aerotron made a portable mobile radio that was large, and had a rounded handle that looked like a water bucket, hence the nickname “Bucket Radio.”  While these large, heavy radios were proved impractical for RMPs, they were used effectively at large gatherings/incidents.
