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.
