Help Identifying Vintage B&K Product NE6F on 22/11/16
My mistake Martin. It is stamped B&K. I believe it to be associated with some sort of TV test gear too. Looks like it was never used by the look of the clean wire ends. Only paid $2.50 for it.

I opened it up and made a schematic diagram of how its wired.
It might make a nice little QRP rig with a few additional modifications. Thanks for your reply.

Stealthy Rope-Light Antenna? NE6F on 29/8/16
Sorry, I guess I did not make it clear that my idea is NOT to connect the lights to the AC mains at all. The rope light AC feed line would only be terminated into a antenna tuner. The rope light is the antenna NEVER to be connected to an AC supply..

Update: Got it working in my truck using the vehicle's 30" car radio antenna. Nice reception from a IBS in China.
