    I tear up the cable TV and internet (comcast).
    My antenna's look ok and still have a low swr, but suddenly I completely wipe things out if I run over 100 watts.

    I figure the cable guys are not going to be very responsive....

    I was tearing up the internet and cable here too, just with my Viking II barefoot. Comcast came out and replaced the underground cable from the pole to the house, put in a new ground rod at the entry point, and replaced all the F connectors on every cable in the house. They pulled the wall plates and replaced those behind the plates, as well as the double-female through-connector in the plastic wall plate. Now it is clean. The tech said that some of the F connectors get corroded, and they leak. The new connectors crimp longitudinally, and have flexible seals to keep the moisture out. Much better quality than what was installed originally.

    There was no charge for this service!

    I think if they cure all the leaks, your RF should not be able to invade their infrastructure.
