Whew....   I am glad you said that.  I always turn my remote switch to 
the dummy load or to a ground buss when shutting the station down... 
some of the local rabble chided me for being paranoid and overly cautious.

My only costly blunder ... so far... was to plug a power supply into an 
active receive antenna while it was connected to the transceiver, which 
blew a couple of safety diodes in the receiver section.   The worst bit 
is I know better which makes it a self-inflicted wound, and those hurt 
the most.
