   I use one for one year and half, I burned the 20m and 30m traps with only
an IC2KL (400W and the SWR < 2:1). Same problem with the R7000 at the club
station F5KPG but only the 20m trap burned (Yes burned all is black in the
trap!!! and SWR > infini). If you use it with less than 200W it is a good
antenna. But Cushcraft lies when they sell it for 1500W PEP.
   To stay in the topic, is anybody can give an idea to command my IC2KL
with my Omni 6 for the automatic band changing. With the Icom amplifier it
is just a pin with different tension depends of the band.
