    Default Can anyone identify this device.

    Hi all, I was going through my junk box of electrical devices and came upon this device shown in picture.
    Can anyone ID item this as I do not remember where I got this from, it has a power wire to it where the centre illuminates once powered.

    Ah one of those things it's either a thingymebob or a doohicky or maybe a whatsit.

    It looks like it may have been a antenna for a paging car alarm. But if it's in your junk box and you cant remember what it is then it's junk.

    The chord is power I presume, only red and black wire with no plug/lugs of any kind fitted. If powered up you do here a relay click and two red msd leds illuminate through the transparent circle cover.
    I do agree with antenna theory.

    Beat me too it. It looks a lot like the GPS/4G tracking antenna that was on my work car. (and kept on having mysterious failures).
