what is this??

did some roof work on my 89 370 and noticed a huge plate on the roof just in front of the bedroom fan.Theres a patch in the ceiling in the bedroom also and under it is a hole less than 2 inches in diameter going all the way to the roof and theres a patch on the plate on the roof to match. My question is...what was there or could have been?

Probably antenna mount, possibly the plate was for reinforcement for a satellite dish?
The normal off air antenna would have the crank come through the small hole

The orange item looks like a harbor freight heat gun (sorry, couldn't resist)

lol nailed it on the heat gun. it has a crank up antenna up front so maybe it was a sat antenna. im hoping I can remove this and seal any holes left by the mounting...theres also small brackets running along the roof looks to be solar panel mounts theres only one panel up there now.
