Hello all, has anyone experienced the fact that if you forget to manually 
change the bandswitch on the Herc II say from 40 to 75 meters, It will still have 
full output into a 50 ohm load even though the wrong band is selected? I was 
talking on 75 M tonight, and looked at the led output just peaking at the 500 
watt mark, with no SWR, and as I was about to look away when I noticed the 
bandswitch was still on 40 M. The amp was working fine, not hot or distorted, no 
warning on the overdrive light etc. I guess I resonated it on a harmonic and 
was probably pretty dirty signal wise. The amp doesn't seem harmed at all. I 
was just wondering if anyone else experienced this. 73. Todd
