I believe it's either for a CB radio or more likely a mobile phone judging by the type of antenna on the window.

Greetings Jason!

I am not certain, but it looks quite similar to an external antenna that I had for my Motoral Bag phone that dated back to 1991.

I was thinking mobile phone, but that doesn't look like it would fit mine... Yeah could be from the early 90's though.

Could I convert it to a radio or something?

I am almost positive that is what they call a PL-259 connector and used mostly for CB radio antennas the little spiral antennas did not work very well but would be good for in and around the campground....SAM

Ok, I also have these.. I think this is the radio antenna as the radio works well. the plug I think is CB as it is bigger than the first pic i posted.. But I don't know where the CB one is hooked up to. Unless it also goes to the big one outside.... This antenna extends up about 5 feet...

The thing you are holding is for a CB or other two way radio. The antenna looks like it is am/fm only, as most CB antennas I have seen have additional coils wound around the antenna a couple of feet from the base.

i had a glass mount cell (bag era) phone ant. that looked like that. it was glued to the glass on each side. i can't recall what size end it had but i think it was smaller. it might possibly be for HAM radio use.

That is a cell phone cable used on early cell phones. There are 2 pictures shown 1 is original post and the other is a CB purman posted. The cable isnt ussually drilled threw the glass it is stuck on outside and then cable is on inside and it is picked up threw glass. The cell phone is clearly smaller, also used for TV signals sometimes also. I cant beleve they would drill glass since you said they did. Years ago at WBCCI ralleys people used to communicate with C B radios when functions started and to get news updates or weather updates
