 >The 25 amp fuse is too insensitive for PA protection. Neither it nor a
25 amp breaker are likely to trip at less than 125% which they should
hold indefinitely, that's 31.25 amps. That's why I use a 15 amp fuse to
protect my Corsair II and it has so far. It seems to be as effective as
the Airpax which I don't have. That 15 amp fuse from a reputable
manufacturer (I use nothing but Buss fuses, no off shore products) seems
to be fast and sensitive enough.

         This actually makes a lot of sense.
I normally only run 65-70W anyway to my amp and
my antennas are resonant.  Think I will opt for
this instead of the Air Pax.  W3DQ can collect
orders for the Air Pax if others are interested.
