In fear of contributing to another one of THOSE threads. The only problem I 
have every had from the limited number of MFJ products that I have 
purchased was when I keyed up the rig/amp with the antenna switch grounded. 
Kind of smoked the detector on the 815B wattmeter. The 4-100A didn't even 
sigh, just kind a poof from the wattmeter told me something was wrong. I 
just had them send me a new board, the old one was at least 5 yrs old 
anyway. They were real nice via their e-mail support too.
