From 1965 "Shipboard Radio Equipment"
Transmitter-Receiver AN/GRC-27( )
The AN/GRC-27( ), shown in figure 3-13, is a UHF transmitter-receiver set covering frequencies from 225 to 400 mc. This equipment is used for radiotelephone and MCW communications from ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore, or with aircraft. The AN/GRC-27( ) is installed principally in carriers and antisubmarine warfare ships, whose primary missions involve the control of aircraft.

I think it was mostly replaced by AN/SRC-20 and SRC-21 in the 1960's-70's.
