Lots of other vintage gear used into the Cold War at this site; check out "old crows" & "flight deck".
It's a little OT but plenty of photo space so i'll post it under "Avionics Aux Power Units" in case any others turn up.

transportable vans. I think in the early years ECI made the mux.
I used to drive one of those 400 HZ APU trucks around the flight line
for radio maintenance(Consolidated Diesel Electric NC-5).
I believe there were a few avionics devices that used 800 hz, at
least back in the 50's-60's.
