Every ham radio station needs a dummy load.  This piece of equipment allows transmitter testing and adjustment with minimal RF energy.

In this well-organized video from Randy Hall (K7AGE), we get a step-by-step tutorial on how to make an inexpensive QRP dummy load capable of handling 20 watts input. The device is small enough to put in your knapsack or "go-kit".

Here are the materials needed for this project:

"Parts needed: 8x 100 ohm 3 watt metal film resistors 1x 1N5711 diode 1x 0.01 uF capacitor BNC or SO239 connector Elecraft sites: Ebay diode Ebay resistors"
