What is this component?

When I installed my iPod & AUX input adapter I found this component wired inline with the antenna in my stock 07 JBL head unit. What is it?

Looks like the kind of component that might be used with a CB radio.

It's a booster. I used to have one just like it in my '95. I never felt like it added much.

Thanks for the reply. I had the truck for about a month before took it out, and I there was no noticeable change in the clarity or signal. Guess it's another gizmo to collect dust in the "random electronics" box.
