That B52 (or was it B25 ?) patrol radio brings back some memories .... think it was made by Fuchs and made use of a rather cumbersome whip antenna, but with a slope wire in a temp base it could communicate over some pretty long distances (25 / 30km).
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Looks like the B25.The rechargeable nicade battery clipped onto the left side.The switch near the antenna was for tuning the antenna.We used to speak (via skip ) to the buddies on their CB radios in SA from the Border those days.
You are so right Andy,brings back many good memories of our younger and fitter days.
