yeap, i've received numerous emails/pm's etc and some were able to use the NSS to drive a relay. perhaps it depends on the type of relay used. dei sells miniature relays, i believe they can be used instead of the typical 12volt bosch type relay.
if genner find success then i'm sure he'll post his results.

Also, assuming your NSS can drive a relay, a diode certainly wouldn't hurt. It would protect the switch in the event your wire shorted to ground somehow.
