Here's a clever way to convert a surplus Low Pass Filter into a useful 50 ohm dummy load.  According to D-lab Electronics, "Depending on the low pass cabinet and whatever resistors you have on hand, a powerful device can be constructed."

Subscribers to this article say your initial cash outlay should be in the neighborhood of $15 to $20 US.  Compared to the prices now being charged for RF Dummy Loads, this homebrew project is quite a bargain.  An RF Dummy Load should be an integral part of your ham radio station.
