I ask:

1  Can RF and AC be equivalent?  I think not.

2.  Unless the relay contacts have high resistance, there should be no 
factor as to how long they are switched ON.... is this what u mean by "duty 
cycle"  ?   But the normal usage of "duty cycle" refers to how many times 
the thing can operate on and off until failure and has nothing to do with 
current carrying abilities.

I say, put in a BIG ONE and if it burns out.... it was too small.  AMATEUR 
radio, after all.... 73,
