6 dB attenuator as a fuse

...nor could it handle any power through it (which means put the 6db attenuator/fuse between it and the transceiver.)

Wayne replies:

Has anybody PROVEN that the Radio Shack 6 dB attenuator will protect a downconverter from accidental transmission?  That is, does the attenuator (fuse) ALWAYS open up BEFORE any devices in the downconverter are damaged?

I suppose there could be a different answer for each model of downconverter.
