You are absolutely right! Been there, done that too.
...you gotta get the resulting arc off of
those relay contacts, otherwise, bye-bye relay.
I found this out the hard way, when I didn't put some sort of capacitor
across the relay contacts of a PTT modification on one of my Viking
II's. Didn't take long for 600v @ 180mA to eat those contacts alive!
