A friend's friend found this hidden on top a cabinet in her bathroom. Does anyone know what it could be? I'm thinking maybe some kind of FM transmitter or something? Her former BF was a radio buff I understand. Not sure what the plastic housing? Is.

Not really the clearest of images.
Where do/did the wires go.
Looks like power, like a light or similar rather than anything as complicated as radio.
Any more images? from different angles?

This is all the pics I have. I will request more. My electronic knowledge is pretty limited but is it possible it is some type of simple FM transmitter? On one of the blurred pics I am thinking it looks like a Trim Pot connected which made me think FM tuning. The black plastic case has me puzzled. I don't know if it is some type of sound chamber? I think it is obvious this wasn't any type of Union job.

I wouldn't get the spooks in.....not a radio with what is showing, that's for sure.
Wouldn't get any dc power in or out given the series cap and power resistor.
Can't see any visible radiation symbols so crack it open and have a look.

I used to know what that is. truely. but the one I had broke and it wasn't very important so I forgot it. its a sensor of sorts I think. But from what you showed us, I would say a home made bug in the wall repeller of some kind. The fact is that it might be a "human repeller also...
