Got that right! I arced-over the little LDG balun on my ladder line fed
dipole the first time I keyed up my T-368. I should have remembered,
but it had been OK with the 100 watt class AM rigs I ran before. The
balun that's built-into the Heath 2060A tuner I'm using now seems to
work fine at high power, but it's about 4 times the size.
