You should probably look for a double pole, I’ve been told you need to open the shield as well....I’ve had similar interference on my hi z array. I’ve opted to go a different route....

I'm assuming a vacuum relay, but in looking at the MGS4U list of available SPST relays, there is a huge price range.  What sort of numbers should I be looking for, given 1.5 KW and location at the base of a quarter-wave inverted L.
