What is this Item, See Picture (below) ?

I got my I-37 delivered on the 31st of October.

I saw this Disk Shaped Item and assumed it's -- Ant. or GPS Receiver.

I looked at it for ID Markings and found nothing, they may have faded out over time. The boat had a Garmin 12 in it; this could be the old receiver for the Garmin 12 or another GPS system ? I don't know boat electronics at all,

so I'm asking.. what is it ______________ about 9 inch disk, (1) lead outlet ?

Also, I found a Shakespere Ant.. I assumed that this was for the VHF that plugs into the top of the mast ? How do you check them out for the correct impedence value ? I remember matching up my twin ant's. on my big truck; I had a high wattage radio for long range use. I assume that your radio and ant's. (in boats) need to be matched up. So, you can't take the boat to a radio shop. I was wondering what value range is acceptable ( _____ high &

______ low in olms).

Thanks,

Avery
