    Hello from a newbie to electronics. Can the required resistor for an LED be located 4' away from the LED? I.E. Resistor located on a pcb and 4' of 22awg
    wire to the led.
    Every example always shows the resistor soldered to the led.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. The function is to limit current, so proximity is not important.
