I see this fear of voltage and current prevalent among the "board-swapper" 
type techs that have never worked on anything with more than 12 VDC. Jim 
W5JO hit the nail on the head, there just isn't a lot of common sense around 
these days.When fooling with HV, put one hand in the pocket and be sure to 
be awake/alert.
