Thank you to the following stations for checking into the North American QRP CW MidwestNet net... NAQCC MWN from Nebraska...

Greatly appreciated the band has not been well for some time the QSB was terrible tonight...We have had about 16cm of snow and its too cold for my old bones minus -10c... I'm ready for Spring!
The car doors were frozen shut this morning and I couldn't back out of the driveway... I was almost late for work... I'm thankful to God for such small insignificant problems...imagine what some must go through...

Thanks Gang!!!

Re: Dummy?

Don Wilhelm <w3fpr@...>
 

Doc,

If you want an accurate 50 ohm dummy load, take a look at the Caddock 50 ohm 1% Thick Film Resistors.  They are available in power ratings from 15 watts to 100 watts.
They *must* be mounted on a heatsink to achieve the rated power level (salvage a heatsink from a defunct computer).  Mount the connector with zero length leads and you have a dummy load that is flat up to 500 MHz and accurate enough for instrumentation.

Take a look at http://www.mmccs.com/mmarc/n0ss/dl_30w_hf-uhf.pdf for one implementation.
You can find another QRP dummy load at http://www.mmccs.com/mmarc/n0ss/qrp_dummyload_w1cg.pdf

Re: Dummy?

Hi Michael,

We all need a dummy load (or several) and it's always good to know how to make your own. If you don't know how then you be a dummy for NOT asking. Good luck with your project.

I made one with 8 1/2 watt 100 Ohm resistors (2 in series 4X in parallel) connected to an SO-239 jack.  Here's a copy of my old webpage on it:  http://www.geocities.ws/n2uhc/dummy_load.html.
