Hi! I'm trying to simulate the circuit in Proteus but it does not work, neither in real life, are you shure this schematic is right?

The circuit is taken from another source as referenced in the Notes. I have not tested it yet myself, so no I am not sure the schematic is correct. You may want to compare to the original reference. If you find an error in my schematic, let me know and I will correct it.

I think that pin 2 and pin 6 should be connected to the junction of  R3 and C2 ?
