Mystery Cockpit Socket

I am the new owner of a traditional cutter from the late seventy's. as one would expect she has fittings and wiring remnants for various iterations of electronics etc.

Three of the four sockets in the cockpit I have identified, the fourth has me stumped. It is a round socket with an attached rubber cover . There are eight small holes spaced in a circle and a ninth in the middle. In the back there is a pair (red and black) attached that are presumably positive and negative 12 V. In addition there is one small black and one larger black wires .The fitting matches neither of the derelict tiller pilots left on the boat.

familiar to anyone ?

Maybe VHF add in or loud hailer. Trace the wires is best way.

A quick click with your cellphone camera and an upload would help immensely...

A Remote Access Mike for a VHF could also be a possibility. I have worked on an Icom, but that has 8 total pins. Pict follows:

Re: Mystery cockpit socket

Haven't identified the specific vhf but I'm pretty sure it is indeed for a remote.
