Tube type transmitters are NEVER run remotely without someone
present. (Except for the thousands of broadcast transmitters, AM
and FM and some very high power TV).
Really? How about adding some protection to said amplifiers.

Icom has always been “remote friendly” with their CI-V and Band
Data I/O. It was possible to have a 160-10 station with a 500 w
amp, tuner and remote antenna switch that simply needed a single
CI-V input and Audio I/O to whatever you were interfaced to 35
years ago, be it an ACC ShackMaster or a Commodore 64 based
Comshack64 using RF links. It’s still possible today (though the
Icom EX-627 switch is long discontinued). That’s why I’ve almost
exclusively used Icom for remote.
