AN/PRC 510 Portable FM Receiver/Transmitter

This is the Canadian version of the American G.I. AN/PRC 10. It looks and operates the same as the American version. It is a Frequency Modulated (FM) receiver/transmitter which can be backpack mounted or installed in vehicles. It looks reasonably clean and the knobs turn and seem functional. It has some dents, scratches and the like as could be expected for its age. I do not know if it works as I do not have a battery for it. I am trying to downsize on equipment. Included is the handset, unissued tape antenna W/flexible extension as well as a schematic and information sheet on the radio.
