Quick question. I've been successfully using my Kenwood with external antenna on roof for a year now and all was fine. This morning, I tried to hit a distant 146.610 repeater using high power and unit rebooted.

Any idea why and how to fix ?

Thanks,
Bill

Have you checked the power supply to see if it is supplying the correct voltage when using high power? I assume you might not have used high power with your current setup. Also check your SWR as it might have changed causing your radio to draw more current.
