Very good, Hasan, I got mine from DEM, I think about $50; it will take the full
power of my Icom 821 ~30watts.  Pretty cheap insurance in my opinion..A coax
switch selects the link, and I don't have to worry about not switching.
I think most of us have blown at least one converter or preamp!!

Now I can use my 2M uplink for AO7 with complete safety.  Prior to 
acquiring the
DEM protection I disconnected  the 2M xmit inside the rig...Not too 
convenient if
I want to xmit on 2M for any reason...
