[Ham-80211] What is it? (probably off-topic)

Sounds to me like a bi-directional amplifier. Typically used for in building
coverage where the normal site doesn't penetrate. It probably is set for the
800 MHz band. It may have been set up for the old analog trunking systems
but hard to say without seeing. You might try looking up the FCC id number
on one of those sites that gives you the info on the product based on the ID

Thank You,

I picked-up, some time ago, a "brick" of an aluminum box, heavy, and
looking interesting.
Made by Allen Telecom, sporting also "db Mobile", and "ActiveLink"
Model # JAA-002 Trunking.
Has only 3 connections, and one LED for Power.
-Inside Antenna ( fitted with a 2" rubber duckie)
-Outside Antenna ( same conn. as a typical old cellphone antenna).
Didn't get the antenna for this side.
-12V power jack.
Definitely some kind of transmitter ( solid aluminum box, some fins as
heatsink, and the telltale of a RF power transistor's stub sticking through.

Searched Google in vain ( only one reference, in Spain, on a
homologation list..), as well as Allen Telecom.
If anybody recognizes the "beast", and can tell me more about it, I'd
appreciate ( probably better off-list, unless the responder thinks the
answer can help others, too).
Thanks in advance,
