I'm having the same issue. My house was built in 2014 with Eaton AFCI breakers. During my first HF contact on 20m, I tripped five breakers in my house, as well as a number of breakers in two adjacent homes. I've contact Eaton customer service, as well as the two contacts listed in the article. Waiting for a reply...

I've gotten a reply back to my email from Bob Handick at Eaton:

Eaton will provide replacement breakers as needed for cases involving HAM radio. If you would like to receive replacement breakers, please provide shipping information.

I'm making arrangements with them to ship replacement breakers. Apparently they do not contract with an electrician to replace them, but at least provide the materials.
