Bare wire inductor

    Hi,

    I have seen some RF transmitters (315MHz) PCB that there are some
    inductor components which uses bare wires of 2.5 turns and 3mm
    diameter. What are their functions? I have calculated the inductance to
    be 13nH which is quite small.
    Thanks!

    If you build a tank out of that inductor, and a cap of 20pF, you have a
    resonance frequency around 315MHz.

    f = 1/(2.pi.sqrt(L*C))
