Mystery item...Gen. Radio Frequency Meter type 558-P

Probably works by zero-beating a local oscillator against the unknown frequency.
When you hear the zero beat you look at the knob setting of the local osc to determine the freq.. sometimes extrapolation is needed.

Today we are spoiled.. we just look at the number on the digital display on a freq counter and it reads the freq.
