ICS Marine Kit For Telit Globalstar SAT550

I have a disused Telit SAT550 satellite phone on my boat, which I am un-installing.

It has a marine kit docking station with separate handset.

The docking station has TWO coax connections, both LMR-400, one marked with a black square, and the other with a red circle. I have the user's manual for this, but nothing about these coax connections.

ONE of these is connected to a Globalstar external antenna on my pushpit. The other disappears and I haven't managed to trace it.

Anybody have one of these? Knows what this is?

This phone is dual purpose -- sat phone plus 900mhz GMS phone.. I presume the second cable is for the mobile phone external antenna which does not seem to have been installed.

Amusingly, the two LMR-400 cables are both marked, in English and French "DO NOT CUT OR REMOVE".

Anyone have any insight? I rather hate to be pulling this equipment out -- the gear plus professional installation will have cost the original owner of my boat many thousands. But I'm never going to use Globalstar, which has no coverage at high latitudes.
"You sea! I resign myself to you also . . . . I guess what you mean,
I behold from the beach your crooked inviting fingers,
I believe you refuse to go back without feeling of me;
We must have a turn together . . . . I undress . . . . hurry me out of sight of the land,
Cushion me soft . . . . rock me in billowy drowse,
Dash me with amorous wet . . . . I can repay you."
