True indeed, Mr. Rauch.  I have seen 170 overshoot watts out of some 
transceivers even though the power is adjusted to 100w, key down on cw.  
It seems to me that the simplist solution is to adjust the grid bias 
voltage so that the exciter can not produce grid current, despite leading 
edge overshoot.  Grid current in Class AB1 is bad news.
