My CFI and I were stumped as to what the purpose of this metal piece is on the roof of a 182. I couldn't find anything from searching Cessna POHs/docs online... Any ideas?
This appears to be an Outside Air Temperature probe.

2$\begingroup$ Correct, @DeanF., that goes on the larger antenna to the right in the 1st pic. $\endgroup$– FreeManJun 27, 2020 at 23:49
