Boy, does that sound like a 'poor' power supply regulation problem OR the momentary high-current requirement is causing the power supply to go into fold-back.... take your pick...  Jim Reed.

  I have an Orion I that I recently purchased used. I have noticed that the
  CRT display flashes on and off with each dot and dash that I send. If I
  reduce the power output to 50 watts or less the problem goes away. The SWR
  is 1:1 and the Orion is properly grounded.

  Is this normal?
