Topband: K9ay loop not performing

Now that I've determined that my transmitting antenna must be
disconnected, in order for my K9AY loop to work successfully, can anyone
tell me what sort of ratings are required for the relay required to do
this remotely? I'm assuming a vacuum relay, but in looking at the MGS4U
list of available SPST relays, there is a huge price range. What sort
of numbers should I be looking for, given 1.5 KW and location at the
base of a quarter-wave inverted L.
I also note that most of the relays listed have 26.5 volt coils. Can
anyone recommend an inexpensive 24-26 volt supply that I can use?
