Hi Luc,

NOW I understand where you were coming from. Yes, not RF grounding
the secondary and instead letting it float at one of the "hot" sides of the
center-tap grounded, NST xfmr is a sure fire way to get a very severe if not
fatal electric shock from the nasty 60 hz HV of the primary circuit when a
streamer connects to the body. Thanks for the clarification and safe coilin'
to you!
