Antenna Help

Trying to figure out the various antennas that are on the roof, and which ones I can remove, if any.

First up, this old skol cellular looking antenna. Not exactly sure what this one is for and they quit making cellular antenna's for phone connnections 15 years ago, so I am sure its not for anything cellular.

Next up is this one that is just ugly as sin.

Then we have this one, which I am pretty sure its for the GPS or Sirrus/XM radio. Its mounted on the inside of the front winshield up against the left pillar.

The first one could be an old cellular antenna. The second one looks like your FM antenna. I have no idea what the last one is, but being that it's inside, I wouldn't think it's GPS or XM radio. Could be some kind of booster for something in the coach.

The first one looks like a CB antenna. I have a similar one on mine, but cant find the cable inside. Second one is the am/fm radio ant. Last one wont be xm, as those are usually on the roof also.

If you pull out the console that is under the dash in the center of your coach, you will find the cb cable rolled up if it has never been used. You may have to search for it .

There are CB antennas that look a lot like old Cellular antennas,, #1
Am/FM Dash Radio #2
IF the first is a cell phone antenna, Then #3 is very likely it's partner

They call it a passive repeater, #3 could also be a TPMS extender antenna. OR .. Well there are several things it could be (Dish Network Remote #2 antenna)
Home is where I park it!
