. I don't see anything that screams "I'm an antenna," but I'm no expert. The antenna _may_ be a trace on the PCB. . See that almost round thing ... square in the middle of the PCB? It has a splotch of red paint in the lower right corner. Don't mess with it (or anything else with paint on it like that) until you figure out what you're doing. You've been warned.

Isn't that the little inductor thing? Where you turn it left or right to tune the transmitter. I know not to play with that as it will break the whole thing.

is that an fm transimitter? I'm pretty sure it doesn't have an antenna, just inductors.

Looks like a simple radio Xmitter. This link here might even be the schematic...

Nope they have antennas. I found it. They taped it to the back of the pcb. Anyways I soldered a new 24 ft antenna on it. :) Very good reception.

Look for a ferrite core, that coil of wire might even be it, that oddly placed tube thing could be, cant tell from the pic... Or under the silver thing?
