And you can build your own RF volt meter, cheap. Cap, diode, current limiting resistor and well insulated probes for tubes. Tickles a bit if you hit plate voltage. As in knock you off your chair and make you pee your pants sorta tickle.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
