No this was a major short between the AM antenna ATU feed bowl to a homemade current sensing loop..  I am going to guess that a fairly large rodent tried to cross from the interior  building wall to the ATU cabinet while using the current sense loop as a stepping stone.  With the application of 1kw of direct power, the copy of the Gates sample box went up in smoke as did the #3 channel on the Sine Systems surge protector AND relay board. 

Every time that I checked the BE AM1a TPO channel it was low and different which is typically a sign of a VSWR foldback.

But the main problem that I had was that it had been doing it for 30+ hours prior to the 7am Sunday morning panic call...

With the time-change, high-power time gets pushed back because of the actual sunrise time. Was his transmitter set up with a remote control system and a macro, to come on at low power?
