I'm trying to make this circuit but I'm unable to understand what the inverted triangle is and how to connect them all together.
Here is the schematic, what does the inverted triangle represent?
And how can I build this circuit, can I use wires to solder to the capacitors, diodes and resistors? Will it reduce it's effectiveness?
I have Capacitors with 102pF, 103pF and 104pF, among the ones I have, which are suitable for this circuit?
I was asked to connect a thin copper wire of 12 inches as antenna, I'm planning on soldering one such wire to one 103pF capacitor and other end of this capacitor to 1n34a diode(D1) and other end of the D1 to another capacitor(C2), and another end of 103pF capacitor to 1n34a diode(D2) and this one's end to D1, below the C2, between both wires of C2, I'll solder 10k resistor, and to these ends I'll solder wires which I can insert in multimeter.
Am I doing this right? Will adding wires reduce it's effectiveness?
