Antenna(?) broken off of my CLUE

by projkt4 on Fri Apr 02, 2021 3:13 pm

Hi, as I was pulling my clue board out of the bubble wrap the antenna (I'm assuming) fell off of my board. Is this black and white PCB board an antenna or something else and is it safe to power on with this piece broken off. I was gentle but it came off when I was sliding the board out of the packaging. See linked image for details.

That is the antenna, and pretty clearly a part or fab issue.

Please email support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread, your order number, and request the replacement of one CLUE.
