Exciter overshoot has been mentioned a lot here in the past. I seem to remember
that full power spikes are not uncommon because of the use of ALC loops for
power setting, and some rigs are worse than others. If I recall correctly, Tom,
W8JI, did a number of measurements. Personally, I always feel a bit
uncomfortable with ALC operating - it tends to be shutting the stable door
after the horse has gone.
