That is most likely an aspirated shield for a temperature sensor, or some other type of sensor. They can be passively aspirated, or fan aspirated (solar powered sometimes):

Agreed. Part of an ASOS or AWOS.

That is not an antenna at all. This is a shield for temperature and humidity sensors on a weather station set up.

I do agree that it is a weather station. However, Verizon installed an antenna that looked similar to this at my grandmas house to get better cell signal and it looks similar to this.

I agree with all the replies regarding weather instrument shielding; HOWEVER, I'd love to see this antenna that DRAYD48 referred to and learn more about it.

I suspect he was referring to: https://www.verizonwireless.com/home...net-installed/

which is not available anymore, I think. He did not mention WHEN this was installed at his Grandmother's home.

In my last post the URL got truncated for some reason?
It should be: https://www.verizonwireless.com/home...net-installed/
