WRT-2 500 Watt US Navy Ship Transmitter
Here is a transmitter for a serious radio ham or collector / restorer who likes a challenge and wants a piece of US naval history. Perhaps you are restoring a radio room in a ship and need some units or the complete transmitter.

These transmitters were made by Cosmos Industries and some of them are from the famous USS Gurke D-783 which was a DD type destroyer before it was finally sunk in 1977 in naval exercises. See

Only a few hundred WRT-2's were ever manufactured by a few manufacturers for the US Navy and very few remain in existence in private collections and ship museums today, most were sunk in naval exercises or destroyed.
