Well, I knew my brain had not gone completely dead. Turns out this is
a phasing issue using two different circuits. One is a regular 110
volt going to my exciter. The other is one side of 220 for the 610.
I figure that I used the wrong side of the 220 to be in phase with the
110 used on my exciter. The 610 fired up just fine until I hooked up
the coax for the exciter, then a dead short. I hate to sound ignorant
about such things, but I need to take a rest from it and start over
when my mind is clear. Got a lot going on trying to get my big iron
on the air again after 6 years...
