Try to use a bulb that will be near 50 ohms resistance under load.

If one uses a 100w bulb instead of a 6w bulb will the resulting signal be significantly stronger? 😉🙈

Sounds good to me. I have used a 6 watt exit light bulb and socket as a dummy load and it worked fine. I used it once with a home brewed tuner and tuned for full brilliance hi hi de Paul

[4SQRP] The Lightbulb QSO Party
For many years OzarkCon has been the host of the famous Dummy Load Antenna QSOs. An example is at Terry's WA0ITP website.....
Now we have another challenge.....The Lightbulb QSO Party.......
Have not tried the lightbulb in a long time but they do work, and be careful because you may see the SWR gradually jumping High! Old school filament lightbulbs are used!
