Just installed a ALE hardware transceiver running on a vertical, the 6500 is running on a longwire, both have SGC-235 tuners at the feed point. I am getting the attached warning when ALE transmits. Is this RF in the shack or the proximity of the antennas? any thoughts would be helpful.

You are getting more than 100mW of power into the receiver and the radio is disconnecting the receiver from the antenna.  It is most likely coupling between the antennas.  I would use a power meter to find out what's up before transmitting any more ...
