Default Maxum 3500scr - 2005 arch

Hello, I attached a picture of the arch on my 2005 Maxum 3500scr. Being a newbie I am wondering if anyone can tell me what each of these 'antenna' things are for? I have auto pilot, and a gps map screen. But there is an extra item up there. Thanks.

The center is the radar, to the right looks like a TV antenna, and on the left gps.

Sounds good to me. I didn't think one was a tv antenna because the tv has no cable hooked to it. I do have a cable outlet on the wall, therefore does that mean if I hook to it I would get a channel or two? If not, how do I start to trace that wire? Thanks, Mike.

First the TV antenna looks like a Sea Star and the cable from it should be ran down one side of the arch so removing the access panel on the arch will allow you to see the cable. I am not that familiar with TV on boats but thought I heard there was an upgrade like when TV went digital so I don't know the vintage of the antenna and if it supports the latest type of broadcasting.

Hopefully someone else with this knowledge chimes in.

Thank you for the info Mike. Sounds like I might have analog TV's and antenna since the boat is 2005. My only hope is the owner upgraded (how lucky am I lol). A trip down to the boat when rain stops will tell all.
