Instructions and EMERs available from the VMARS group here:
http://www.vmarsmanuals.co.uk/archive/files_index.htm

The radio itself has the power supply built in. It only needs 6 VDC to power the vibrator.

The aerial looks much like an automotive telescoping whip. It has the lead-in built in and attaches to the vehicle body at two points.

I can post a photo of mine if you need it.

Here's the aerial and the connector. Radio oldtimers might recognize the connector as a popular mic connector used in the 1950s & 60s.
