A few months ago, I inherited a nearly new Samsung display from a fellow 
ham, who told me that the touch-buttons that control monitor went nuts 
when he keyed his rig. He lives on a small lot and runs legal limit, 
mine are mostly much farther from the shack, so I fired it up in my 
shack.  It mostly worked OK, for the reasons noted, but not when I load 
up a 160M vertical about 25 ft away with 1.5 kW -- the monitor does, 
indeed, go nuts and eventually shuts down, probably due to a 
microprocessor crash.
