I'm not sure if this will solve anything...but here it goes.
1st..Make sure you antenna connections are tight. it sound like it is arcing.
2nd.. make sure you SWR is very low. 1.5 or lower. (very important)
3rd.. make sure the rf power at your radio is turned down to low..over powering (over driving) your amp will fry your finals. (just as important)

If it's not any of these..then I'm not sure.
I have always used an Road King RK56. Not the knock off but the real deal. I would sometimes shock my lips on the metal grille , when I keyed up with my linear on high. I could also power flourescent lights when I got under them..lol and that was with a 250w box and a galaxy 99!
