Had it happen at our mountaintop station this past summer. Would have been a real disaster except by luck I was there are the time. Only lost a BCB radio, one computer and ironically, a UPS. Exact symptoms were 160 something on one side of the shack, and 80 on the other. I jumped up, killed the power to the shack and the power company was likewise quick to come out. Seems they hear the term “lost neutral” and it gets their undivided attention. 8^)
