Regarding the dummy load power rating, I just want
to be sure y'all know that when the transmitter is 
modulated the total power output will go up.  Be 
careful!  A rig delivering  1 kW at carrier delivers
1500 watts with 100% sinusoidal modulation.  And, 
should you be so inclined, it goes up to 2 kW with 
squarewave modulation.
