    Hi all

    I am currently trying to find a replacement for a component in what I think is a wireless module.
    However, I have a hard time finding the name for it.

    The component I need some help with is the plastic one in the pictures. It also have a screw in it, so I guess it might be for adjusting frequency?

    Thank you :)

    @davenn To be brutally honest, I didn't know what to write. I just wanted to know what it was, as I'm doing a project where I am trying to figure out the function of each component.

    ahhhh OK :)
    I assume there must be some other components on the other side ?

    looks like some kind of plastic thingy with two rings and an adjuster as to which ring gets the most signal. I would call it a freq shunt, or a signal rectifier. Hows my guessing?
