Re: Question about shipping.
Mine popped the pills because the board that provides the protection failed, according to Elecraft repair. There were no adverse operating conditions: turned it on, first dit, kapow. Drive was something like 18w. Coax, switch, antenna were all ok.

Under what operating conditions would have caused the finals to fail?
I have a early model of the KPA500, sn 804 and it's been flawless. I have it connected with the KAT500 and my K3s.
I wouldn't mind finding another one.
