It might be a city fire alarm annunciator, Gamewell or similar system.

It's got an inker and a recording paper.  But the swing is pretty limited, and could be a million different things

Trouble with this one is just about any clues I offer will give it away.....

So....here goes....boB would be much worse than he is if one of these were around when he was knee high to a grasshopper. Hmmmm...maybe boB is too young to...ahh, nevermind!  ;D
I got the deluxe kit, it had a solar cell and a meter.

OK... One more guess.

It's an automatic Morse Code message sender that reads the message off the tape ?

Possibly the tape maker-puncher on the same machine it looks like.

Even an abstract clue is enough to nail it!  :)

boB of course wins nothing. Nothing will will be mailed. Nothing will be shipped.

Smarty pants boB wins nothing! Again......as a penalty for getting 2 in a row, tomorrow you get 20 Hz.
If ya get the next one it goes to 30 Hz! Four in a row? Besides being rude, critical deployment of a multipier of unkown origins shall be improvised, input distortions, harmonics with harmonic proportions etc. Not to mention fundamentals that will not be fun! Keep in mind, 60 Hz is where you will be by next Friday if you keep showing off!  :)

No detectable carbon.....no visible petri dish type occupants....at least not in any quantities to be of concern, one would hope!  :)
