Umm im not sure what you mean...The input to the 4420?Or the MOSFET?The 
input to the 4420 is connected to the antenna...The MOSFET gate is 
connected directly to the 4420 output via a 10ohm resistor.

It seems to be directly linked to the metal enclosure...Dont know why, but 
im throwing it out...
