Gads, my OMNI VI luck is down this last few weeks.

I was fiddling around with a 160 meter antenna and using a 
tuner ... and there was clearly some RF flowing back around
the shack.  The rig (power supply) shut down pretty quickly
when I pushed the power up at all.

I did this twice, now the receiver is deaf.  It can
hear the rig next to it tuning up (barely) but nearly
completely deaf to the band with an antenna connected 
(I can just almost hear a signal that is 20 over 9 on
my other receiver).

Anything obvious?  Is there a diode in the receiver antenna
line to protect the front end that may have fried itself 
that I should check?  (Is this part of the aux line too...
the receiver can't hear through the aux antenna line either.)
