Re: Protectors for downconverters

Hello Joe,

I do use here the protector from SSB Electronics. It saved my down converter 
several times for me :) It will not only protect, but the transceiver also 
sees an bad SWR - so it will get only low power from it. I also use here the 
IC910 with its 100W on 2 meters.
