Does that sound right?
Being in parallel is wrong because why?
But then how can I not have it be in parallel with the Emitter resistor-to-ground you said I should add?
Im assuming it can be calculated, what the voltage and current flow should be at each point in the circuit, right?
Will LTSpice just tell me and then I can check those values against what I see on the board?
4K7 is shorthand for 4.7K. Saves typing a dot. Either would work. 4.7K ohm resistors are common.
It isn't shorthand, it is because if you print or write 4.7k on a schematic, it doesn't take much to either mistake the dot for a bit of smudge, or it might really be 47k but you mistake a bit of smudge for a dot.4k7 is much harder to mistake for another value.
