Just installed latest dlc, picked up the hammer, met the old guy, picked up the walkie talkie and ever since could not find it again to use it.

The walkie-talkie is a mission item that’ll allow the characters to contact you. It’s not visible in the inventory. Or am I missing something here, are you unable to proceed with the next mission?

As stated above by Xezr, walkie-talkie is supposed to disappear. This is intended game feature.

Here’s even a screenshot where that walkie-talkie goes, once you pick it up;

It’s one of the mission items of The Ringfort main mission.
