Given that the power you're feeding the transverter is only around 25% above
the dummy load's rating, you should be able to get away with a bit of extra
cooling, such as a fan blowing over the dummy load.  You may also have to
reduce the drive to the transverter itself by modifying any voltage divider
networks, to avoid linearity problems caused by too much drive.
