and what about when you transmit into a dummy load ?
does it shut down on all power levels?
does it shut down on other bands? have you tried other bands ?
if it is shutting down on multiple bands, I would be checking your power supply
it may be failing under load ( this is the most likely cause!!)
check the power cabling between supply and radio, make sure connectors and
fuses in their holders are tight
