ID this thing on my roof

Ok so I was checking out the vent on the roof,what is this?
there are no real markings on it,it's on the front of the bus and doesn't look like the strobes they put on the back either.
It doesn't appear to do anything

I do see it needs resealed and or removed.

Re: ID this thing on my roof

random hole in the roof? school bus mechanics covered it up. Or like Keith said.... satellite communication. Qualcomm makes a round satellite communication pickup system used on semi trucks. I've not seen a square model but that does not mean they do not exist.

You gonna remove it? Or maybe just seal it up and call it good.

Or you could open it up and put a satellite radio antenna in there

I like the "para scope.... " idea. Maybe you could build the worlds first submarine bus!?!

Re: ID this thing on my roof

AH---I prefere the tangential approach (read passive agressive) to my snide remarks. But if you would like to quote my excellent idea elsewhere I wouldn't say a thing
