Thats how I got started, but in a slightly less safe way. Tapping the top
of the old mechanical relay that switched the HT (in this instance it means
High Tension) to a Progress-line mobile rig. If you got sleepy and missed 
the relay armature, the 300 volts soon woke you up. 

That was on Oscar-6 (from 8P6DR) ... happy days.
