Glad you're enjoying it. It's a good mystery.

Here the spot which is now empty.



And some close-ups of the plug.






Whatever was there, is was most likely connected to the mystery antenna at the top.

Regards

Bene505,

I still have my old cell amplifier/repeater at the office in Atlanta... I'll be there this Wed, if by chance they used the same type of unit, the power feed connector may have been the same - I'll check against your pics. In the meanwhile, you might take a look at older Nokia units on-line to see if that's type of connector they used... Nokia (if I remember correctly) used to be the most popular brand used for marine/RV applications back in the 90s. The previous owner of Layla seems to have paid a pretty penny for the installation he ordered... too bad (or good ) technology moves too fast to make such high $$ installations viable.

Similar device.....

Well, apologies for the tardiness of my response I was out of the country on a happily computerless trip and lost the thread when I returned.... My Nokia set up connection was slightly different than your pic in that it was a 25 pin connector with pigtails for an external mic, speaker, cradle, etc for a hands free operation at the nav station. I took a couple of pics to give at least an idea of the typical size of such devices (my new Wilson repeater is almost identical in size) You'll note that the antenna is virtually the same as yours. Hope this helps - fair winds! Sailndive

SailnDive,

You are so awesome. Thanks for the reply. That antenna does look like the mystery antenna.

I picked up a Top Climber, so I'll be going up the mast to get a good look at the antenna as soon as our boat is back in the water. I'll post pictures.

Regards
