HF RF Tripping Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI's) W4TL on 10/10/17
I purchased my newly constructed home in October of 2012, not knowing that I had 13 Eaton BRCAF120 breakers installed in the load center in the garage. I have recently installed a flagpole vertical antenna for HF use, and found that I can trip nearly all of the breakers with as little as 10 watts on anything above 7.3 MHz. I have been in contact with Eaton customer service with regard to getting these breakers replaced with their "ham" breakers and they continue to redirect me to the electrical wholesaler who sold the breakers initially. As I am not the builder of the home, I have no knowledge of where the breakers were purchased or any proof of purchase. I simply have the deed to the house. What recourse do I have, if any, to get these breakers replaced with something that is not as sensitive to RF?

Thank you,
