Hello Stuart,
Be extremely careful, you could easily zap by
mistake your computer, HiFi and TV and those of
your neighbors, like I did with my initial
experiment. You also could zap yourself, if you
are in a close position. Best to activate any
switches with long plastic rods, rather than
depending on something that by itself starts a
resonant signal that you cannot turn off in time.
A pulse like this can also zap your electronic
watch and cell-phone.

 I agree with you absolutely.
