HF RF Tripping Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI's) W4TL on 1/9/17
I'll join in with a similar issue with Eaton breakers installed in a new construction home (2017) that are popping. Right now I'm only running barefoot into a 20m attic dipole. Our electrical contractor did contact Eaton thanks to the information in the ARRL article. Apparently all Eaton breakers manufactured after 2015 should have a fix incorporated that prevents RFI from popping them.

The electrician replaced all 5 breakers that would randomly pop when I keyed down, and not always on the first transmission. It could take multiple transmissions to for one of them to pop. Of course within 5 minutes I was able to get one of the new breakers to pop. So back to Eaton with that information and the next steps.
