        I originally sent the below to the VHF reflector, and the first answer
I received made me send it here.  I drive the Mirage A1015 with a FT-690RII.
        PA3BFM said it was because of the SWR-protection circuit, and he fixed
it with a .01 cap "somewhere".
        Any idea where?  Or another possible fix?

        My Mirage A-1015 amp has always done something that seems to me to be a
bit weird and I'd like some opinions on it.  It seems to pose a high amount of
reflected power for perhaps a second or so and then settle down properly.

        1.  Do they ALL do this?
        2.  Is this related to the RF-sensing cirsuit that keys the amp?
        3.  Will running a hard keying line solve this?
Thanks ya'll!
