Any source for HV fuses in the states? I only have a few and not the right
value, need 3A/8KV.
My 3ph power supply works with just 2µF output capacity, so not that many

At the other extreme is the homebrew amp running a YC-156, 4CX10000, or
similar and with a filter bank of 200-500 mF total output capacity plus a
CCS + rated transformer. They DO exist. I wouldnt want to be in the same
building when an event happens!

One thing missing in all commercial ham and most homebrews is a real HV
fuse. Having both the resistor and a fuse is the best protection IMO.

Having worked on many amps in the USN I became a fan of HV fuses and stocked
up on a suitable selection back when they went begging at hamfests. These
days they are hard to find.
