Can you ID these ugly things on my roof
#1
Gurus,

I am on a hunt for water leaks on my roof.  I have to admit that I have neglected my roof but that is about to change.

I am tempted to just remove all these warts and then see what does not work.  But cooler heads recommend that I identify them before removing.

So...Can you identify these things?  And do you have a recommended procedure for patching the holes that will be left behind? 

 (There is an odd shaped little black device on the passenger side that I would think would be an XM antenna, but there is another for-sure XM antenna farther back.  

Thanks,
Bill

The two small black antenna bases look like CB (middle photo with the spring loaded base) and likely Cell phone (last photo) antenna. The bracket in the foreground is where my CB antenna is mounted but that certainly wasn't a CB antenna. Looks like it could have been part of a circular over the air TV antenna at one time.

Because this was a race coach, I am assuming one was a track antenna.

I have already removed the CB radio....and don’t listen to FM radio....So I am thinking I’m gonna just unscrew all of them and then seal with a plate and some Dicor.

The first one used to have some sort of rubber on the plate (long since dried out).
