The amplifier arcs whether it is driving the tri-bander antenna or the dummy 
load.  There is no fault with either the dummy load or antenna.  I am assuming 
the switch is somehow damaged, possibly due to the initial flashover event 
which I attribute to the vacuum relay.  Continuity testing on the switch 
section itself reveals that it is switching the various terminals as intended.  
But the arcing still occurs none the less.
