It's an IsoPole made by AEA.  You can see the start of the AEA logo in the picture.

Thank you for the detailed identification. This transmitter site appears to have been unused for quite sometime. I am trying to determine what its purpose was.

They are (were?) very popular. the 2M antennas were often retuned for the 150MHz business band.

Before cell phones dominated, they dotted industrial area rooftops.

Peace!
