Antenna Bracket - Remove or Leave Alone

The prior owner of our 2011 25' FC FB Twin had installed a ham radio antenna on the roof. The bracket that held it remains - see pictures below. I believe it is well installed and sealed, and my roof is water tight. Still, I'd prefer to not have this now useless hunk of metal up there. Would you remove it and reseal, or leave well enough alone and leave it? Thanks for your thoughts, and any advice on how to proceed, if your advice is to remove. Best regards, Joe

If you decide to take it off, I'd like to have it. I am in the process of trying to figure out how to make one just like it.

Since I obviously have a conflict of interest, I won't make a recommendation.

Looks really sturdy -- I'd leave it there for now and see if it might be useful for mounting something that want to add later. It might come in handy for a cell phone, mobile broadband, CB, satellite or fringe-area (OTA) television antenna mount.

I can already think of a couple of things I could bolt to it, if it was on my Bambi.

Al and Phoenix - thanks for replying; I'm going to sit tight for now - maybe you are right, some new (for me) use for this bracket may make itself known in the years ahead. Happy Fourth! Joe

If it isn't leaking, I would leave it alone. Why create new holes. Jim

You might also want to get your ham radio license and make use of the bracket :-)
