Elecraft K3/100 + KPA500 @500W Inverted-L 50' vertical over incomplete radial field === Something in the antenna system (which is switched by a DC voltage sent down the coax) was getting hot and kicking the SWR up high enough to fold back the amp and radio so I would occasionally go from 500 watts to < 50 watts in seconds. This was especially acute when running. Thanks for the QSOs and 73, --Ethan, K8GU.
