In search of advice. I want to install a new Palstar DL2K dummy load. The set up is Rig> Amp> Digital Wattmeter> Tuner> Antenna. Where is the best place to install dummy load.

I once used a Drake MN-4, which had an "alternate" connection for attaching a dummy load. This worked quite well.

I suggest adding a coaxial switch, between the wattmeter and tuner, so you can choose either the tuner/antenna or the dummy load.
