It might work better if you use an unused gate or some such. Phantom often
has numerous loads on it, so you could consider a pair of OC gates if
they're available. Otherwise, a SCHOTTKY diode should suffice, since its
forward voltage isn't enough to confuse any other device into missing the
LOW on the PHANTOM line.
