All true.  You should be able to overload the preamp, but not generate dangerous levels to the radio.

How are you sensing the RF feedback?

The HI-Z system has active antennas + a low noise amp. The highest signal is that generated by the low noise amp and it cannot destroy anything. 

I am using a 3-el (6 directions) Hi_Z array for a few years with the elements in the radial field of 160/80m vertical while pumping all the power that 2k-fa power can deliver, with no problems.
