The internal fuse in the Viking II is in line with the low and high voltage 
transformer primaries and protects both.  As stated before, there is no 
prorection for the antenna relay socket unless the original fused line plug is used.  
This is not a good idea and it should be replaced as you said, with internal 
fuses. If wired correctly, only one additional fuse would be needed to protect 
both sides of the line and the lead to the relay socket should be moved ahead 
of the fuse to protect that outlet.

second holder for a single fuse in the hot side of the line only and replaced 
the line cord with a 3 conductor and "3 prong prang". >>
