HF RF Tripping Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI's) W4TL on 1/12/14
I moved into a new house in August 2013. I have an Eaton breaker panel. My AFCI breakers tripped above the 30m band regardless of transmit power. I contacted Joe Fello at Eaton and he said that they would replace the breakers. I gave him the name of my builder's electrician. The local Charlotte, NC Eaton rep dropped the replacement breakers off to the electrician and made arrangements to pay him. The electrician replaced the AFCI breakers and I have had no more trips running 100w on all HF bands. The whole process took about 2 weeks, partly due to me being out of town for a few days. Eaton was very responsive and customer focused.
