    Hi Steve:   The addition of a static draining choke in a Hi impedance 
antenna system is in my
 opinion an ill advised idea. The DXE amps I believe allready use a peaking 
resonance utilizing an
 inductor to resonate with the antenna/amp/stray capacitance. This would detune 
the peak above
 your part of the band. If you are not using the peaking inductors it would 
produce a peak down
 somewhere around 550 kHz. Not a good idea. As I also believe the DXE amps are 
input protected
 with clipping diodes it seems the best idea to find the actual components that 
have failed. Then
 perhaps one could figure what the real failure mechanism is and devise a fix.
