U3_RF is a RF1642 in a QFN12 package

U21_RF is a 824-2170MHZ filter in a 0402 package. It appears to be one of Murata's "Chip Multilayer LC Filters (BPF)". Something like this most likely.

c46_RF is a 6.3V 10UF 20% capacitor in a 0402 package

Yes, it is possible that these missing components are part of your problem. Hope this helps, good luck.
