Turn tx power down to see if there is a power level that does not cause the
problem, just to confirm it really is an RF problem. Try connecting radio
directly to dummy load and see if problem goes away, If you can run full
power into a dummy load and not have the problem, then you can probably
make the problem go away with changes to your RF cabling in the shack.
Perhaps quarter wave counterpoise wires connected to your operating table
ground buss.
