K3YQD, HFPacker Amp

A few nights ago I plugged my HFPacker amp into my PowerPanel 8 and it blew a 20A fuse! I took it in to Rich KD6WYK's borrowed current-limiting supply and it checked out fine. I guess it was feedback or something. Not very satisfying though. Virgil K5OOR is sending me some new MOSFET insulating shoulder washers and a few other parts Rich and I ordered, so I will be sure to change those out!

I worked K3YQD Bill in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania on 20M PSK31 with my HFPacker amp at about 50W, driven by my PSK-20. I need to figure out how to reduce the drive on the PSK-20! 2004 May 05 0130z. He gave me a 599.
