Antenna Difficulties

Just thought I would put up the results of what everyone sent me and 
the outcome.

Everyone said that it was RF getting back into the antenna. I seem to 
agree with this and will be breaking out the toroids.
George suggested to make the lpt port less sensitive to RF by using 
PTT ENABLE = FALSE. I tried this and it worked fine at 100 watts. So 
I switch the amp on and got as far as 350 watts before it started 

I think this is the first time that I have tried the box on 40M as I 
am getting ready for the RAC Winter Contest. Oh by the way nice to 
see a logging program that does a Canadian Contest.

Thank for all the help and replies. But the message up before I went 
to bed, got up in the morning and 10 messages sitting there waiting 
for me. Much appreciated.

73's and Merry Xmas
