Evidently several years ago, someone suggested installing a 1.5KE15A transient 
suppression diode with a fuse at the PS output.  This seems like a simple 
solution to me compared to SCRs, added circuits etc.  One question, since these 
diodes will clamp, thus protecting the load ( my Triton IV ) why won't the 4A 
slow blow on the transformer input do the job.

I'm thinking of building the zener and an in-line fuseholder into the cable 
between the 262G and the 540.  That's to avoid modifying either the power 
supply or the radio.  Wonder if anyone else has used that approach, and whether 
I'm missing something crucial.
