Hey Mario,

Most of what you have diagrammed is simple enough. However, letís talk about the 220v LED. This is a variable in your circuit. An LED is a DC device. If you are using an off-the-shelf 220v, 5 watt LED bulb, then it has a driver internal that converts the typical 220 AC to DC for the LEDs. There are a couple ways this could, and are done so this is a variable to your circuit. It most likely provides resistance and some capacitance in parallel of the resistance, to the signal from the antenna.

Is the LED for visual purposes only or is it a required part of the circuit?
