What causes this 360 phase shift at ~20khz?

2 Attachment(s)
In this simple common emitter stage there's an intentional pole at 10hz at the input and an intentional 180 phase shift due to the CE stage inverting gain stage but I want to understand what model parameter causes the 360 phase shift. Also, is this something I need to be concerned about? Rails are +/- 15V.

Here is the model:

.model mpsa18 npn (
+ Is=33.58f Xti=3 Eg=1.11 Vaf=100 Bf=2.365K Ne=1.579
+ Ise=166.7f Ikf=.1172 Xtb=1.5 Br=5.774 Nc=2 Isc=0 Ikr=0 Rc=1
+ Cjc=4.948p Mjc=.4109 Vjc=.75 Fc=.5 Cje=7.547p Mje=.3765 Vje=.75
+ Tr=800.3p Tf=310.1p Itf=.6 Vtf=6 Xtf=35 Rb=10)

Any guidance?

If I understand your question correctly you mean the vertical line at ~20kHz?
This is just an artefact of the way the phase is displayed. It is not a problem.

Best wishes

How is this an artifact on the way the phase is displayed? It goes from -180 to +180 instantaneously, so for some reason there is a +360 phase shift at this frequency.

-180 is +180 ;)

The phasing is the same but a +360 degree phase shift is not "the same", its one full cycle of delay.

I would just like to know what is going on, calculation wise, in which there is a instantaneous 360 phase shift. I agree its not real, I just want to know where it comes from.

Its a quirk in the way that degrees are displayed on graph, the + numbers are added to 0 degrees and the - numbers are subtracted from +360 degrees

If you can change you graph scale from -200 to +200, to a 0 to 360 scale it would make more sense

In some software you can show the phase with(out) this display artefact with a check box called "Wrap phase" or some similar option.

Are you asking why isn't the phase flat all the way past 20k?

Yes.

And this is not really a "graphing" issue, as it's displaying correctly, the simulation data points just change from negative to positive. This is what I would like an explanation on:
