Sounds like it could be fundamental overload of anything from the detector on back to
the 1st RF amplifier in the AM band receivers, Joe. Best bet is probably going to be
run about 100-150 feet of coax back behind your house to the 6m antenna. Get the
antenna as high in the air as you can and aim it away from the poor AM receivers.

Reduce power level on the TR-6 to the minimum needed for acceptable communication,
and ground EVERYTHING in sight!

Let us know if that helps any.

is operating from batteries (w/ AC cord removed) or AC power.    Joe K7MKS
