Should be. Most ham gear current specs are on the high side. With a properly tuned antenna you should current draw should not be over 10A. I had my FT-8800 on a cigarette lighter plug, with a 10A fuse never popped the fuse, even when transmitting @ 50w.
Interoperatablity is not a technology, it is an attitude!!!
