Common Mode Current & Crashes

I was getting WSPR 4 and WSJT-X crashes on my FT-897D on a Win 10 Desktop, then switched to a Elecraft K3S and was still crashing. Typically, I could run a while on RX only but crashed quickly on TX.

I've put chokes from Palomar at my antenna bases, at feedline entry to my house, and right before the K3S and now all works very nicely.

YMMV, but squashing Common Mode Current might help you too.
