[CQ-Contest] Inter-station interference

What I told Andy was that a certain Ferrite Bead that I was using on
my antenna feedlines was the cause of increased inter band
interference at my station. It appears that the performance of the
bead was altered by a nearby lightning strike.
The problem I experienced did NOT involve ferrite baluns.
Please remember that my station is unique and I would be surprised if
anyone else experiences this exact problem.
Ferrite bead chokes in this application (they are NOT baluns) when
properly installed will not increase inter band interference.
