The UPS of 1000 watts should be able to handle the station during
receive. I wouldn't plan to hold the system up during transmit.
A Tripp-Lite 1500 VA UPS is $168 as found on Amazon. An APC sine
wave UPS rated for 1350 VA is available for $179.
Seems reasonable to me to resolve the issue.

it would take a very large UPS to run the KPA500 (1000 va)
on transmit along with everything else.
Sure, why not have the KPA500 on the UPS just as the other
part of the station. During receive the power demand is quite
low. Problem resolved.

We have a 20 kw whole house standby

running on a UPS (except the KPA500) in order to keep
computers, etc., running for the 10-15 seconds it takes for
the generator to kick in when an outage occurs.
The KPA500 goes off, of course, but does not automatically
come back on when power is restored. It seems like it might
be advantageous for it to resume operation in Standby mode
in order to resume cooling, if it was operating when the
power went out.
