With the cable supplied there is no fuses. Is there internal fuses? If not what should the power lead be fused at.

There is a 30A internal fuse for the entire radio and another 3/5A fuse for the receiver-exciter board. With PowerPoles most people are using a distribution box that fuses each radio at the distribution point. You may, of course, place a fuse in-line with the power cable as well.
