It also had a weird fuse inside of it.

    What they call a twinax connector for like FM radio or old style TV antenna.

    Mate connector usually has a flat 'ribbon' wire.

    The fuse is for lightning protection.

    lmao, you're making me feel really damn old right now.

    That's a 300 ohm antenna outlet. Basically, at some point someone had one hell of a TV or radio antenna up on the roof, and it's signal would run to that outlet. From there you'd be able to pick up broadcast stations. If I had to hazard a guess, someone probably installed that during the 80's.
