Your Circuit Gets Power, Not the Antenna

Okay, just had an “aha moment” when reading this post. You’re not gonna be drawing power from the antenna itself, as it it’s somehow got electricity running through it and becomes some sort of power source to insert into your circuit.

Rather, you simply link it up to your running circuit and your circuit itself then “somehow” has all the power it needs, regardless of how much voltage you measure across the antenna or whatever.

Since I hooked up my battery to the antenna for my previous test, I’m gonna let my battery run down by keeping the camera’s LCD screen on and see if the battery goes dead.
