    Looks like a radio with no control head, perhaps old cellular.

    I used to work in the Schaumburg plant and saw those radios. Long time ago....

    1985 vintage DynaTAC mobile. I have one I pulled out of a friends' 1986 Honda Accord a few years ago. Required an R1801 or similar PROM programmer to program the NAM. As old school cellular as you can get.
    Your streaming makes me AES-256. Keep it up and you'll soon have nothing to listen to.

    Swindon, UK - where the eBay auction is from - used to be home to Motorola's GSM development and factory. So it's likely a testbed of some sort.

    Dynatac. Not a test bed. MTS is correct.
