Highly likely! You're better off, if you must, to do a charge pump off one
of the I/O pins.

455k is getting a little adventurous, but I would only expect layout-driven
Gonna be a lot of RF current into that gate cap, and the source needs a
solid link back to the uP gnd and VCC pins.
I'm wondering if you were turning the fet fully on and off, since the
output drive on the pic is relatively wimpy for such things.
