Salt Water Dummy Load. Post 2142.

Every ham shack needs a "dummy load" to test rigs and make adjustments without creating RF interference.

In this video from Darrell ("Radionut63"), we see how simple tools, some wire, and a small amount of salt water can create an emergency dummy load for your shack or portable operation.

Just be aware, however, that dummy loads can radiate RF if you're not careful with the assembly process.
