I guess so... though my tuner on 160m would arc on the coil once power was
high enough and the swr was not low enough in a given portion of the band.
That would cause my ACOM 2000A to go into standby mode as the arc(s) would
allow the amplifier to see a high swr. It was pretty cool to see this with
the tuner cover removed and the room lights off.
