When transmitting digital modes, my software immediately freezes, and the transmitter switches to recieve. This only happens above 20 watts, and only on 20 meters.
Ive not dealt with RF issues before so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

You may need to decouple the wires attached to the computer. I've used large FT-240-43 toroids--10 turns should work OK on 20 meters. If the wires are thin you can wrap several wires around the same toroid.
