Well well, now this is wild , it can kinda light CFL's from the transmitter top while just dimming the LED. I didn't expect that. Should be only a couple of hundred volts there. Maybe it's normal. Bit more power and it will work from the receiver too.

touching the side.

I'm impressed, this is still only running from 12 volts at 180 Ma. I could tripple the power input to the transmitter so the cfl would light better and still be using less than half the cfl's rated power consumption it's a 15 watt cfl.

A funny thing happens when the cfl is touched on there. The input cuurent goes down then up and repeats this when I remove it, like surging or backwash.

Cheers
